A TILBURY councillor remains suspended by the Labour Party despite being cleared of any wrongdoing in a criminal investigation.
Tilbury Riverside and Thurrock Park councillor, Clare Baldwin was the subject of a harassment complaint in January.
But when she answered bail nearly two weeks ago, cllr Baldwin was told there was no case to answer.
But any hopes that she would be fully re-instated have been dashed as a Labour spokesperson confirmed she is still suspended.
A Labour spokesperson said: "In this circumstance a decision about whether to lift a suspension is taken in due course following the conclusion of any internal investigation."
