THURROCK Council has taken legal action against Tilbury councillor, Clare Baldwin.
Papers were lodged at Basildon magistrates court on Friday morning (Jan 15th).
Due to legal reasons, the details of the (civil) case cannot be published.
The court case came a few days after the Tilbury Riverside and Thurrock Park councillor was arrested by Essex Police on suspicion of alleged harassment over the internet.
Cllr Baldwin has also been suspended from the Labour Party whilst investigations are taking place.
Cllr Baldwin has been a councillor since since 2011. She was re-elected last year with a majority of just five.
