Labour councillor defects to Conservatives in York

Labour have lost their majority on City of York Council after one of their councillors defected to the Tories.

Cllr Helen Douglas criticised Labour for having "no vision" nationally and a "misguided" vision locally. She said that the Labour administration has taken on too much debt and told backbench councillors "only what they want them to know".
