Dagenham councillor Dan Young has been suspended from the Labour party in the aftermath of an assault on a woman thought to be his girlfriend six weeks ago.
Cllr Young, 24, who accepted a caution for common assault following the October 31 incident in Romford, stepped down as chairman of London Young Labour last month, as revealed in the Post.
But it has now come to light his membership of the Labour Party itself has subsequently been suspended.
“Following further investigation, Dan Young has been suspended from the party,” a spokesman told the Post.
He could not confirm when the suspension had taken place.
It is not yet known what action, if any, Barking and Dagenham Council will take.
The Met were called to Western Road in Romford town centre at 3am on Friday, October 31, to what was referred to as “a domestic assault”.

“He was taken to an east London police station.
“Neither person required medical attention.
“A 24-year-old man was later issued with a police caution for common assault.”
Despite multiple approaches by the Post, Cllr Young has declined to comment.
