Dudley Councillor guilty of assault by beating his wife

A councillor has admitted assault after throwing a pudding bowl at his wife’s head – sparking calls for him to resign.

Tory councillor Paul Woodall’s wife Joanne was left with a one-inch cut to her forehead and blood pouring down her face, a court heard.

Dudley Magistrates was told Woodall, 45, elected two years ago for Kingswinford North and Wall Heath, would sometimes “scare” his wife when he had been drinking.

Woodall, of High Street, Wall Heath, pleaded guilty to assault by beating and the case was adjourned by magistrates for pre-sentence reports to be prepared.

 Councillor Woodall said: “It is a personal matter and has been dealt with personally.”

My comment: No it's not, you may be a councillor but you are also a wife beater. That clearly concerns the people who voted for you and you questions your fitness to be a councillor.
