One of the changes forced by last week's local election results in Southend-on-Sea was the change in Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group. Cllr Carole Mulroney now leads this two-person team.
There are seven Groups in the Southend-on-Sea Council chamber -
Conservative, Labour, Independent Group, Southend Independence Group, Liberal Democrat, ULIP, and Independent.
However, who belongs to which group is in an almost-constant state of flux, so expect changes to groups and numbers in the coming year.
