Boston Borough Council has been recommended to adopt Government protocol on allowing council meetings to be filmed by the press and public – and for live updates to be posted to social media sites.

The recommendations were made to ‘enhance the transparancy and openness of the democratic process’ and to ‘hold to account’ elected members and officers acting in the public spehere.

The Standard made a request to film at the meetings in January this year.
