Two Labour councillors have been caught watching a football game during a finance debate at Croydon Council.
Cllr John Wentworth and Cllr Pat Ryan were spotted by a member of the public watching a game between Crystal Palace and Everton while the council debated funding cuts.
The councillors have apologised after a member of the public, Gabriella Bush, took a photo of them watching the game on a tablet and shared it on social media.
Cllr Wentworth took to Twitter to apologise for checking the score during the council meeting
Being an avid @CPFC fan is no excuse for checking score during Council meeting. Apologies for any offence caused.— John Wentworth (@johnpwentworth) December 8, 2015
