Sandwell Council: Ex-housing chief cleared by probe over mum's house
A senior councillor has been cleared of any wrongdoing after an allegation he urged his authority to buy back his mother's previously council-owned home.
Sandwell's former housing chief Simon Hackett was also alleged to have indecently exposed himself and asked for a parking ticket for a "relative or close associate" to be cancelled.
The authority said no further action would be taken.
The council said it carried out a "thorough investigation" along the lines set out under the Localism Act 2011 and there was "no evidence of a breach of the members' code of conduct".
When investigations began, Mr Hackett, who is now overseeing children's services, said the allegations were "totally without foundation".
