14:11 21 January 2014
A new leader has been elected to opposition Green Party group on Norwich City Council.
Andrew Boswell, 57, has been elected unopposed to replace Claire Stephenson as leader of the 15-strong Green group.
Ms Stephenson stepped down as leader following the birth of her son last year.
Mr Boswell has been a Norfolk County Councillor for almost nine years and became a city councillor in a by-election in 2012. He represents Nelson ward on both councils.
The Green leadership team will also include councillors Ash Haynes and Paul Neale, both of whom represent Town Close ward.
Mr Boswell said: “I am very much looking forward to being opposition leader at City Hall. I’ll be looking for opportunities to work with the Labour administration, especially on creating more jobs for local people in Norwich.”
