A councillor in Hull has been suspended after branding people protesting against cuts at a council meeting, as "retards".

John Fareham, the Conservative group leader at Hull City Council, made the comment on Twitter following a heated debate over budget cuts last February.

He's been suspended for 20 weeks following two complaints.

Mr Fareham has apologised for his remarks.
