Ex council boss Derrick Murphy opts not to stand in upcoming elections

Have your say

The former leader of Norfolk County Council has announced he and his wife will not stand for election in May.

Derrick Murphy, who was found to have breached the council’s code of conduct at a standards hearing last week, had already quit as chairman of the Conservative group.

Mr Murphy, who currently represents Freebridge Lynn, had still been due to stand as a councillor in the Forehoe division in the upcoming county council elections, but announced yesterday that he would not be doing so.
