Mercury issues legal challenge to council over 'secret' debate

Following on from my post over the weekend, our lawyers have this morning written to Leicester City Council challenging their right to debate the future of the city's Bowstring Bridge in private.

We have asked that they either let our reporter (and the public) into the meeting (which starts at 1pm today) or postpone any discussion of the issue until after they have considered our challenge.

For those interested in reading the letter, you can find it here (pdf).
