A fourth district councillor has announced their resignation from the Conservative party at the North Norfolk District Council.
Angie Fitch-Tillett, councillor for the Poppyland Ward, has today announced her resignation from the party.
Ms Fitch-Tillett said: 'It is with great regret that I have, today, resigned from the Conservative Group at North Norfolk District Council.'
She added: 'For the past year I have found it increasingly difficult to support many of the Leader's proposals, especially as little regard appears to be taken in respect of the history and traditions of North Norfolk in several key areas, especially when they are in, or adjacent to, my Ward.
'I see myself foremost as having the honour of being a custodian of this fabulous District who is also a lifelong Conservative activist. This decision has taken a tremendous amount of soul searching over the past year, but I am afraid I can see no other way forward.'

Mr Rest also voiced that the reason for his resignation was that he could no longer support the leader of the NNDC.
