Brighton and Hove City Council leader Daniel Yates has stood down, with a parting jibe at the Labour Party's handling of Brexit and anti-semitism.
Mr Yates, who became leader of the city's Labour group in April 2018, says the role has left him exhausted. But he also says he's fed up with fielding complaints resulting from his party's divisions on key matters.
He told BBC Sussex the burden of his council leader role was "driving me into the ground".
But he added: "I'm also tired of having to deal with issues around anti-semitism and around Brexit, where I feel that my party is fundamentally letting people down."
Mr Yates was re-elected councillor for Moulsecoomb and Bevendean for a second term last week, but his party suffered net losses of three seats, leaving it just one ahead of a resurgent Green Party on the hung council.
