Her loss, which has not yet been confirmed, will be a big blow to the cabinet headed by leader Cllr Ged Cooney.

And any departure will see a search for a replacement begin quickly.

If the news is confirmed, it will be the second change to the cabinet in little over three months.

In October, Cllr Dave Sweeton was replaced in his position as executive member for inclusive growth, business and employment by Cllr Jack Naylor.

Tameside Council’s executive cabinet next meets on Wednesday, January 24.
