Councillor quits over Cambridge transgender toilets row

A councillor has resigned over a row about whether transgender people should be allowed to use women’s toilets.
Ann Sinnott, 68, stood down from Cambridge City Council, saying: ‘I do not want to be a member of a council that fails to recognise that female-only facilities are needed by women as a generality.’
Miss Sinnott added that the council ‘insidiously dismantled’ women’s rights.
She claimed there could be a “risk” to women if trans people accessed spaces where women “expect privacy”.
Liberal Democrat councillor Zoe O’Connell, who is transgender, said Cambridge was “a progressive and accepting city”.
