Stourport Tory councillor defects to UKIP

Stourport Town Councillor, John Holden, has defected from the Conservatives to UKIP.

Cllr Holden joined UKIP for a "fresh start and the beginning of a new approach to local politics" and because UKIP doesn't operate a whip telling its councillors what to think and how to vote.

Cllr Holden will be Wyre Forest UKIP's candidate for the upcoming by-election to fill the vacant Stourport seat for Worcestershire County Council.
