AN INDEPENDENT Sheffield councillor has joined Labour - in a move that further strengthens the ruling group’s grip on power.

Coun Frank Taylor, who has represented Gleadless Valley since 2008, was elected as a Liberal Democrat but quit the party after a fall-out with its leadership. He rejected overtures to re-join the Lib Dems last year after the then ruling group lost its overall majority.

Coun Taylor said: “People in Gleadless Valley are being hit really hard by the cuts that are coming from the Tory-Lib Dem Government and I am delighted to be joining Labour as they work to protect Sheffield from the onslaught from Government.”
