A woman who was trending on Twitter when a chaotic parish council Zoom meeting went viral says she is "surprised" by the reaction.

Planning committees are not usually considered "must see", but one in Handforth, in Wilmslow, Cheshire, has notched up two million views.

The Handforth Parish Council meeting saw some members even sent to a virtual naughty chair.

Jackie Weaver had said most council meetings were "just not like that".

At one point during the meeting Ms Weaver, who is from the Cheshire Association of Local Councils, quipped she should be called Britney Spears.

She said she was called in to help and "support" two parish councillors to hold the meeting.

Ms Weaver, who is from the Cheshire Association of Local Councils, has been trending on Twitter along with the council itself, and fans of the video include Olympic Gold Medallist Sir Chris Hoy who asked: "Who needs Netflix?"
