Two senior Wolverhampton Conservative councillors have been charged with the possession of cocaine.
Councillor Ian Bisbey, who represents Oxley, and Bushbury North Councillor Carl Husted were charged by police last night.
They will appear before magistrates in the city on Wednesday.
The pair have already been suspended from the Conservative Party and removed from two high-profile council roles following their arrest on July 25, on suspicion of robbery after a night out in the city centre.
That allegation related to an alleged early morning dispute with a private hire taxi driver near Bisby’s home in Eastney Crescent, Pendeford.
Following a police investigation, both were yesterday told they will face no further action over the robbery allegation, but were bailed on a new charge of possession of cocaine.
