A REPORT into a complaint that a Thurrock councillor incited racial hatred by using the term “Big fat gypsy cesspit” in a press release, has yet to be submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
The original complaint against Corringham and Fobbing councillor Mark Coxshall was made in August.
YT has spoken to Essex Police who have told us that they are still in the process of obtaining witness statements.
Cllr Coxshall made the comments in relation to a planning application on a traveller site in Corringham . He said that there was a concern that the area could “become a cross between my big fat gipsy cesspit and Shameless”.
The councillor refutes claims his comments were racist and said the travellers had acted illegally.
