Statement from Mayor Len Brown
“I don’t intend to comment on the highly personalised allegations made on a blog site this afternoon.
“But I do confirm that I had a relationship with a woman that lasted around two years.
“I told my wife previously, and she and I are working through the issues privately. We are looking to protect our children as best we can.
“These are matters of an entirely personal nature and I ask that the media respect my family’s privacy.”
Brown confirmed the woman was not a council employee but served on a council advisory board and stood in this year’s election for a local board.
