The Public Services Ombudsman for Wales has said it is looking into a complaint made against Connah’s Quay Central Councillor and Flintshire County Council Leader Aaron Shotton. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Flintshire Council confirmed it has been made aware of allegations made against the Cllr Shotton. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The Ombudsman is assessing whether the Council Leader broke the local authority’s code of conduct. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A spokesman for Flintshire Council said: “The council has recently been made aware of some allegations and has now been advised that a referral to the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales (PSOW) has been made. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The PSOW is the appropriate route for investigating any alleged breaches of the code of conduct whilst the investigation is underway. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It would be inappropriate for the council to comment any further, bearing in mind that we have a duty of care to any employee who may be implicated or is placed at risk by any allegations.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
