At the meeting, it was pointed out that the flag was only flown on special occasions and suggestions were made that if a flag was to fly over the council-run hall on a permanent basis it should be the town's own colours.
The councillor who took it down, Ben Piper, said: 'It has never been customary to fly the Union Flag over the Civic Hall constantly.
'Somebody did have a moan about the flag and it was drawn to our attention that it was still up.'

More pathetic pandering to the regressive left. Let's vote leave and fly our flag with pride.

The Union Flag might offend certain people. Let's replace it with a white sheet. Much more appropriate for the Remain camp.

Don't suppose we know the origins of the person who complained? Vote Leave.
