A senior Conservative councillor has been suspended by his party following a Twitter race row with a fellow party member.
Clr Bernard McGuin, Almondbury Tory and deputy political chair of the Huddersfield Conservatives, has been suspended pending an investigation, a Conservative spokesman said today (Wednesday).
This week Clr McGuin has been criticised by the Far Right Watch group for a now-deleted tweet sent in 2014.
It's claimed he tweeted: "Oh yes, let's allow a bunch of fascist Muslim murdering b*****s to take over instead, terrific".
It's not clear what he was responding to.
