Rodborough residents have elected a new parish councillor after going to the polls yesterday.

Robin Layfield came out on top with 160 votes, meaning he will take up the parish's north ward seat, which was previously held by Sergio Zappulo.

Another election will be taking place in the parish's west ward on Thursday, December 6 to replace Alex Parnham-Cope, who has gone off to study at the University of Cambridge.
