Paget-Brown, who was forced to resign last month in the wake of the council’s response to the Grenfell Tower disaster, has set up NPB Consulting.

According to his LinkedIn page, the company offers "policy analysis, seminars, briefings and drafting assistance".

The London Evening Standard reported yesterday that the company was also offering "strategic communications" and "stakeholder engagement", but these no longer appear on the profile for the company.

However, a High Court judge said the council must allow the media to report, but Paget-Brown then abandoned the meeting altogether, shortly after it began, telling those present that it could not have an "open discussion" with the media reporting councillor’s comments.

The decision was criticised by Downing Street and Paget-Brown resigned the next day, saying he had to accept his "share of responsibility for perceived failings".
