A borough council in the west of the region has a new deputy leader after her predecessor stepped down.

Elizabeth Nockolds is now second in charge at West Norfolk council.

The long-serving conservative, who works within the NHS and represents the South Wootton ward in King's Lynn, replaces fellow conservative Alistair Beales.

Council leader Brian Long said: 'Alistair said he was struggling with the time committment in the deputy leader role and he requested to stand down from it.' He added Mr Beales, who represents Gayton, had been 'a real asset' as his deputy. He said he would be remaining on the council's ruling cabinet.
