A parish council has vacancies for six councillors after five of its members resigned.

Full Sutton and Skirpenbeck Parish Council would not confirm why five councillors had resigned. The council has had the other vacancy since the elections last year. A by-election to fill the six positions will be held if 10 electors of the parish council write to the chief executive of East Riding Council at County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA by 9 March claiming an election. Otherwise, the parish council can elect a new member from those who have expressed an interest. To discuss the role, call the parish clerk Claire Findlay on 01759 371853.
