The Conservatives have taken back control of Norfolk County Council at a meeting in Norwich today.

Cliff Jordan, was elected the authority’s new leader, replacing Labour’s George Nobbs, after the Green Party indicated they would no longer support Mr Nobbs.

The Tories have also taken over the chairmanship of the council’s committees.

The change of control comes three years after the Tories lost power at County Hall following substantial losses at the 2013 elections.

Labour’s David Collis, who represents the King’s Lynn North and Central division, was elected as the council’s chairman for the coming year.
