Nottinghamshire councillor may resign over union jack

Help

A councillor who disagreed with a decision to start flying a union jack in a Nottinghamshire village only on special occasions, has threatened to resign.

John Harbury-Carlisle, of Holme Pierrepont and Gamston Parish Council, said he felt "strongly" the flag should be flying constantly on the village green, since it was put up to celebrate the Royal wedding in April.

Parish councillor Diane Kidger said councillors decided it would now only be flown on special occasions, after receiving complaints from residents.
