A CITY councillor has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a woman in her front garden.
Coun Marcia Watson, of Bilborough ward, has been accused of assaulting Fiona Kirlew, 28, who is the mother of Coun Watson’s grandson.
Police arrested Jorael and Shimone Thomas at the same time. The Evening Post understands they are Coun Watson’s children and the arrests followed a conversation about Coun Watson’s grandchild’s comfort blanket.
It is the second arrest of a city councillor to be revealed by the Evening Post this week. The other was Councillor Hassan Ahmed.
The allegations against Coun Watson relate to an incident which took place at about 9.30pm on October 28 outside her home in Nuthall Road.
