A FORMER civic mayor has been criticised after making expenses claims to cover items including donations made in church collection plates and charity raffles.

Elected mayor Peter Davies is angry over Coun Eva Hughes’ claims, which also included a pair of ladies’ tights and a bill for £36 worth of Marks and Spencer biscuits in one day.

Mr Davies, an English Democrat who was elected Doncaster’s mayor in 2009, is in charge of the council and policy, while a civic mayor is appointed each year to act as a ceremonial figurehead.
