Dear Sir,

The claim made by the anonymous contributor (Newton News 9th April) that local Labour councillors ‘signed a non disclosure document’ with Livin is baseless and needs to be retracted forthwith.

Further claims in the letter are misleading and a distortion of the truth and is no way to conduct an honest political campaign.

Cllr Eddy Adam & Cllr Kate Hopper (Aycliffe West)
