WIGAN Council's leader has asked Leigh MP James Grundy "to consider his position as a councillor" after a video surfaced of him exposing himself in a pub before he served in public office.

Footage recorded in the Rams Head Inn in Lowton shows the Conservative representative dropping his trousers and exposing himself in front of a group of women aged over 18.

In the video, which was recorded in 2007 when Mr Grundy was in his late 20s, a woman can be heard telling him to lift his shirt up to expose himself, which he does.

Mr Grundy can also be heard telling the person recording that there is “no way” his face could be included in the footage.

On the same night, Mr Grundy was also filmed in the pub singing Adam and the Ants' Stand And Deliver and Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer.

The incident happened months before he was elected as a Lowton East councillor in 2008, a ward he still serves and was set to step down from in May for the local elections.

In response to the video, Wigan Council leader, Cllr David Molyneux, said: “In light of this incident, I would encourage James Grundy to consider his position as a councillor in Wigan.”

The politician made history in December by becoming the first Conservative MP to represent Leigh.

It is understood the Conservative Party view the incident as a private event with all present aged 18 or over.

The party also added that the incident happened before James Grundy was a representative in public office.
