A magistrate has been sacked after she was caught misusing a disability blue badge.
Margot Conyers, a JP at Leeds magistrates’ court, was booted out of office after being caught using the parking permit.
Conyers, 58, from Mirfield, West Yorks, was dismissed following an investigation by the Judicial Conduct Investigation Office.
A spokesperson said: “The Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice have removed Margot Conyers JP, of the North and West Yorkshire Local Justice Area, from the magistracy after she was convicted of misusing a disability parking badge.
“The Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice found that Miss Conyers’ actions were incompatible with holding judicial office.”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
