Wisbech is represented by a mayor, Cllr Aigars Balsevics, who, in his business life, has been criticised by a licensing subcommittee.  


Fenland Council licensing committee found Cllr Balsevics breached Covid-19 regulations at the Angel on Christmas Eve.  

“Covid regulations were largely ignored as was the Health and Safety at Work Act,” the committee concluded.

“There was little or no safeguarding for employees and customers. The motive behind this blatant disregard can only be for profit.
