Abergele...Councillor Andrew Wood voted in virtual meeting 'while recklessly driving car'!

He needs to do the decent thing and resign, however just like the scandal-hit Cllr Tom Mclean who posted far-right material, he also refused to go. People like this, like to hold on to their power, and to say he has critics in his own constituency is an understatement.

A councillor voted in a virtual meeting while allegedly driving a car. Cllr Andrew Wood, who represents Gele and Llanddulas on Conwy Council, appeared virtually at a meeting of the council's Finance and Resources Overview and Scrutiny Committee back in July.

The independent councillor, from Abergele, is reportedly seen dialling into the meeting using a device which appears to be attached to a bracket mounted within the vehicle. He is said to be seen raising his hand to vote, initially as the vehicle is stationary.

In later footage, he is allegedly seen raising his hand while the vehicle appears to be moving. It is claimed he also appears to switch off the video feed while still moving after having voted.

Opposition councillors have now described his alleged actions as "completely reckless", and claimed that the meeting could "quite easily have turned into a complete tragedy". When asked about the footage, Cllr Wood said he was not aware of it and could not comment on it.

He added: "I can tell you I have not done a Zoom meeting while driving a vehicle. The only time I have ever attended a meeting whilst in my vehicle would have been an audio meeting only.

"I play it through my Bluetooth, other than that I do not have a clue as it's never been pointed out to me. I know nothing about it."

The meeting, which lasted for more than two hours, was live-streamed and the video in full later appeared on the council’s YouTube channel.

A spokesperson for Conwy County Borough Council said: "We were not made aware of this matter until we received an enquiry yesterday. The Monitoring Officer will consider appropriate action and also remind all elected members of their individual responsibility to conduct themselves in line with the requirements of the Code of Conduct and Members Protocol."



  1. Horrrid, obnoxious, evil man

  2. I hope the police investigate and charge him, however he is a Mason, so more than likely his friends will make it all alright! So nothing will happen then, sad, corrupt but true!
