Retiring Group Leader Councillor David Wood said, 'We agreed that the leadership and deputy leadership should change and Andrew is a passionate local politician and I know the Group is in very capable hands."

Andrew Stringer told the EADT: "I would like to wholeheartedly thank David Wood for his sterling work in bringing this vibrant group together. We're all very excited at the prospect of building on his solid foundation. We will continue to hold this administration to account and work for the good of residents across Suffolk."

Caroline Page added: "David has been a fantastic leader, and I am excited to be taking on this new responsibility alongside Andrew. As a group we all believe gender balance in politics is important, so it is pleasing to see this better reflected within our own leadership structures."

The Group which is the largest opposition team at County Hall was formed following the 2017 County Elections and has five Lib Dem Councillors. As a collaborative multi-party group it has proved to be an effective opposition at Endeavour House in challenging the ruling tory administration on a wide range of issues including cuts to school transport, and the state of Suffolk roads
