East Cambs Tory councillor Carol Sennitt and her husband Christopher have been charged with causing criminal damage to a 2015 black Range Rover Sport,

The offence is alleged to have happened in Ely on August 18 and 19 and the couple, both aged 58, will appear before Cambridge magistrates on Tuesday.

The charge sheet says the extent of the criminal damage alleged to have been caused is to property “valued under £5,000”.

The court will be told the names of the two men to whom the car belongs and the Sennetts are charged with “intending to destroy or damage such properly or being reckless as to whether such property would be destroyed or damaged”.

Cllr Sennett lives with her husband in Fordham Road, Soham, and won a seat on East Cambridgeshire in 2015.

She is currently the service delivery champion for the council within the environmental services department.

A health care professional – she specialises and is qualified in feet – Cllr Sennitt has lived in Soham all her life.

She worked as a nursing sister for 20 years at Staploe Medical Centre and for three years co-owned a local café, Chatterbox.
