Cambridgeshire County Council’s UKIP group have announced the election of a new Leader and Deputy Leader.

Former Deputy Leader of the group Paul Bullen will take over the leadership role with Cambridgeshire County Councillor Simon Bywater being voted deputy.

The move follows the decision of former Leader Councillor Peter Reeve to step down to concentrate on his local council work. 

He has also been selected to fight the North West Cambridgeshire parliamentary seat in 2015.

Councillor Reeve remains a County Councillor.

Councillor Bullen said: "I would like to thank Peter for his hard work and look forward to working with Simon in the future."
