A FORMER housing committee chairman with Westminster City Council who was one of 10 people named in the gerrymandering scandal has been found shot dead at his home.

Dr Michael Dutt, 43, apparently killed himself after announcing that he could not afford a legal defence over the allegations, in a report by the District Auditor, that could end in those involved facing a pounds 21m surcharge.

Hertfordshire police said the coroner had been told. An inquest will open on Monday.
