Recording meetings of a council in Northamptonshire remains banned.

Corby Borough Council met on Thursday to discuss allowing the public and the media to record and film its meetings but decided against the move.

Councillors expressed concerns the public might edit material to misconstrue or take out of context what was being said or debated.

However, an exception was agreed for an audit report discussion on 17 July when recording and filming will be allowed.

The authority's audit and governance committee is due to discuss other options including a suggestion to stream meetings on the internet.

This is already done by other authorities including Northamptonshire County Council.
