WALTHAM FOREST: Miranda Grell resigns from party and job

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Miranda Grell Miranda Grell

IN a statement issues to the Guardian today, following her failed appeal to clear her name of smearing election rival Barry Smith, Miranda Grell said: "This morning I resigned from both the Labour Party and my job working for the Deputy Mayor of London (Nicky Gavron), at the Greater London Authority.

"Although I know I am innocent and intend to pursue further legal appeal, what I have been convicted of amounts to bringing the Labour Party into disrepute and gross misconduct of the GLA constitution.

"I cannot expect either of these organisations to continue to formally support me in these circumstances."
