Members of the Isle of Wight full council will be gathering at County Hall from 5pm for an extraordinary meeting tonight (Wednesday).
The meeting has been called by Island Independents, Labour and Liberal Democrat members after it was alleged the decision to not elect a chair at the full council meeting was bulldozed through by Conservative councillors. An accusation refuted by the newly-elected Leader of the Isle of Wight council, Dave Stewart.
