    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    The leader of the main opposition group on Shropshire Council is to step down from the role after eight years.

    Roger Evans said it was the right time for someone else to take the helm, after seeing the Liberal Democrats through their most successful local elections to date.

    The party, which has been the main opposition group since the council was formed in 2009, now has 14 of the 74 seats on the authority.

    Councillor Evans, who represents Longden, said: "I have always felt that after an election is an especially good to take stock and look to the future.

    "I have and feel now is a good time to hand over and allow the group to elect my replacement, to take us forward and ensure the many different communities are listened to and their voices are heard and taken note of.”

    Nominations will open on May 31 and the new group leader will be announced on June 21.

    A change in the weather is on the way - expect lots of rain with brief spells of sunshine as an area of low pressure moves up from the South West.

    The temperature will range from 12 to 15C (53-59F) but with gusts of up to 40mph it will feel colder than that.
