Newcastle turns blue

Good news. Newcastle-under-Lyme has turned blue, and not because of the pong from the Silverdale tip. The Sentinel reports today that:

"Four independent councillors on Newcastle Borough Council have joined the Conservatives – giving the Tories an overall majority on the authority"

Hopefully this might cause a re-think on their 'build on green spaces' stance.
