From The Daily Telegraph:

Less than 24 hours after both men responded to sleaze allegations against Mr Lewis by insisting he had done nothing to compromise his role as a magistrate, it emerged that there was no record of the deputy mayor ever serving as a justice of the peace.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Justice said: “No, he is not and has never been a magistrate.”

Scotland Yard separately revealed that police had received a string of complaints against Mr Lewis over the last decade, in one case leading to his arrest on suspicion of deception. Each time the police concluded that no further action should be taken.
