Councillors vote Paul Robinson's role as deputy police commissioner is 'incompatible' with East Riding Council seat
Deputy police and crime commissioner Paul Robinson is set to reconsider his role as councillor after colleagues urged him to resign his seat.
Cllr Robinson has come under fire for deciding to stay on as an East Riding councillor after being given the new £45,000-a-year deputy's roll.
Today, a full East Riding Council meeting voted to back a Labour motion describing the two posts as "incompatible".
In a debate, council leader Stephen Parnaby said negative public perception over the issue was damaging the credibility of both the PCC's office and the council.

A total of 54 councillors voted to support the motion with only five voting against. There were also four abstentions.
Afterwards, Coun Robinson, who represents Howdenshire, said: "I am going to reflect on what has been said this afternoon before making any further comment."
Earlier this week, Coun Robinson announced he intended to give up his £10,700 basic allowance as a backbench councillor.
