Three defections to UKIP in Havering

The Conservative Mayor of Havering has defected to UKIP, losing overall control of the council for the Conservative Party.

Cllr Eric Munday is joined by two other former Mayors, Cllrs Lynden Thorpe and Peter Gardner, who recently left Havering Conservatives for UKIP and have been sitting as independents. This makes UKIP the third largest group on the council with 7 members, ahead of Labour and behind the ruling Conservatives and Residents' Group.
