Labour to run West Lothian Council as minority administration

A Labour minority administration is to run West Lothian Council - even though the SNP has more local councillors.

It is the latest example of the largest local party being left in opposition.

Last week, a proposed coalition deal between Labour and the Conservatives in West Lothian was vetoed by the party's executive body.

Administrations have still to be formed in Edinburgh and Clackmannanshire.
