This year's Lib Dem, Labour, Tory & other councillors you didn't read about in the nationals or on HnH (Jan & Feb only)

Regular Twitter or Facebook users who follow our posts will know that we regularly publish updates on councillors from the Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and other parties who have been in trouble with the law or been accused of racism, sexism or homophobia.

As we're in the middle of an election period, we thought it might prove useful to provide a list of all those we have featured this year. So, without further ado, here's the list for January and February of this year only - March to the current date will follow in the next few days.
