Labour hail Derby win and Nottingham mayor rejection


Labour have celebrated after taking control of Derby City Council and seeing Nottingham reject the idea of an elected mayor.

Paul Bayliss, Labour's leader in Derby, said he was "honoured" his party had been voted back in while the outgoing Conservative leader Philip Hickson said Prime Minister David Cameron needed to "get a grip".

Jon Collins, leader of Nottingham City Council, said he was glad people had voted against having an elected mayor but felt the referendum had been a waste of money.
