Labour has gained overall control of Sudbury booting the leader of the Brent Lib Dems out of his long-standing seat.
Paul Lorber is the highest profile casualty of the borough’s local elections after losing the seat he has held since 1982.
Cllr Helen Carr, who is new to the world of politics, is the only Lib Dem councillor left in the borough automatically making her Mr Lorber’s successor.
Sudbury was previously held by Mr Lorber, Chandubhai J Patel, who decided to step down, and Labour’s Mary Daly who kept her seat.
