The newest member of Attleborough Town Council said he wanted to help make sure the town remained a special place to live as its population grows.

Phil Spiby, 56, was co-opted onto the council after a vote at Attleborough Town Hall last week. Mr Spiby and the other applicant, Stuart Burns, won five votes each from councillors, and the meeting's chairman, Vera Dale, used her casting vote to break the tie.

Mr Spiby said: 'I would like to use what skills I have in order to progress the Attleborough Neighbourhood Plan, and work with the town council to make Attleborough as nice a place to live as possible in the future.'

Mr Spiby is a sustainability advisor at UK Power Networks, and has previously worked in public relations and journalism. He has been a member of the neighbourhood plan steering group.

Mr Spiby is married with two children aged 16 and 21.
