A former Labour candidate who would have become North Yorkshire County Council’s youngest councillor if elected has quit the party to join the Liberal Democrats…

Welcome to the party, Tyler.

  1. Just the kind of recruit we need – young, idealistic and keen on some form of progressive alliance. I join Nigel in wishing all the very best.
