Dudley UKIP group rule out coalition with Labour or Conservatives

UKIP's newly enlarged group on Dudley MBC have unanimously voted to reject any coalition with Labour or the Conservatives.

Kerry Lewis was elected for Wordsley ward today, taking the council into no overall control which means the Labour needs to enter into a coalition if it wants to carry on running the council. The Tories and Labour immediately entered into talks after the results were announced.

The UKIP group elected Cllr Paul Brothwood as leader of the UKIP group on Dudley MBC.
