Labour councillors Steve Logan and Louise Harris-Logan tendered their resignations on Friday, meaning a local by-election is on the horizon for the town.

Mr Logan and Mrs Harris-Logan, who represent Kirkley and St Margaret's respectively, both cited work-reasons for their decisions, saying they can 'no longer dedicate sufficient time to the role'.

A joint statement by the WDC Labour Group and Waveney Constituency Labour Party said: 'We believe that Mr Logan and Mrs Harris-Logan have acted in the most honourable manner in taking this step.

'We wish them both well and thank them for their hard work.'
