The leader of the Liberal Democrat County Group Morwen Millson, who represents the Horsham Riverside Division, has stepped down following the recent election results.

The party lost 10 of its 18 seats across West Sussex in the county council elections on May 2 making it the third largest party behind the UK Independence Party, which is now the main opposition at County Hall and she said this morning (Tuesday May 14) that after eight years as leader it was ‘time for a change at the helm’.

Former county group leader Dr James Walsh (Littlehampton East) has confirmed he has taken her place as group leader and Mrs Millson will continue to represent residents in Horsham on the county council.
