Crwley's Conservative Group has elected a new leader after losing control of the borough council at last week’s local elections.

Furnace Green councillor Duncan Crow was chosen to replace outgoing leader and current Pound Hill South and Worth councillor Howard Bloom.

Coun Crow took to Twitter to announce the result.

He said: “Pleased to confirm I am the new leader of the Conservative Group on Crawley Borough Council.

“I look forward to serving the town in this role.”
