A LIB Dem councillor who faced scandal for holding sex parties at his home in Fareham is now set to become this year’s Lord Mayor of Portsmouth after being re-elected.

Cllr David Fuller held on to his Fratton seat after claiming 860 votes – fending off Labour’s Tom Coles, with 733 votes. Councillors voted for Cllr Fuller to be last year’s deputy Lord Mayor and he is set to be the 2016/2017 Lord Mayor pending a final vote on May 17. Cllr Fuller has said he has not held similar parties since their details were made public in 2013.
