THE Eastbourne Tory who tweeted ‘Just Bomb Bristol’ has apologised.

Here’s what Stephen Halbhuber has said: ‘I want to apologise unreservedly for my comments last night, and for any offence caused.

Needless to say, it is not something that I believe, or would advocate for.

I made them in the spur of the moment.

In the cold light of day, I completely regret them.

I have a responsibility to residents to act with propriety and tolerance.

Yesterday, I fell beneath that standard, and can only apologise and promise to learn from my mistake.”
