UKIP lose three seats, but it's no change in Great Yarmouth

The loss of three seats by UKIP and a gain of three by independents were the only changes at Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

The Conservatives retained all 20 seats to maintain control and Labour held its 15 leaving one single UKIP member returned to the council.

Adrian Thompson, who stood as an independent, won by a landslide with more than 1,000 votes in what was the Tory safe seat of Fleggburgh.

He said that watching county and borough councillors' allowances increasing when taxes have gone up is a disgrace.

"A lot of people do not realise they get paid and the borough councillors have been given a rise," he said.

"When council bills are going up I don't think it's right they should have an increase in pay."
