A FORMER Wigan councillor who was jailed after being convicted of expenses fraud has been released from Styal Women’s Prison.

Mum of one Emma McGurrin, who represented Standish before being de-selected by Labour, returned to her Ince home in recent weeks, it emerged today.

She declined to give an interview to the Evening Post or publicly offer remorse.

McGurrin was jailed for eight months for fraudulently claiming £1,700 for child care.
