A mayor in Northern Sweden has been told she is no longer welcome inside the town hall, because she is a health and safety issue, reports Swedish Radio News.

Social Democrat Ulla-Maj Andersson has been told by the council's head of administration that she will have to work somewhere else, as council workers and bosses have complained about angry tirades and threats aimed at them.

An independent investigation into problems at Nordmaling Council found that almost 100% of the respondents had complained about the mayor's actions.

The mayor cannot be fired, as she is an elected official, she can only be forced to quit if her Social Democratic party decides to remove her.

Swedish Radio has tried to get a comment from the party leadership, but they have so far been unable to get a statement.

Ulla-Maj Andersson is refusing to comment on the issue, and will now have to find a new office in the town after Easter.
