Peter Whittaker and one of the cars damaged after he crashed into it

It is my wish that I continue to represent the people of Tardebigge on Bromsgrove District Council

In the statement, Coun Whittaker said: “I sincerely wish to apologise for the incident on November 20, 2011, to those innocently involved, to my family, working colleagues and those in the wider community.

“I am extremely grateful for the continued support of family and friends and for the character references supplied by people I have known for a long time and which were presented to the court. These were taken into account by the magistrates when handing down the judgement that they did.

“It is my wish that I continue to represent the people of Tardebigge on Bromsgrove District Council and carry on with the work that I have been doing for the last 12 years.”

It is not yet known if he has appologised directly to the victims or offered to pay the £3,000 one of the victims were left out of pocket.
