Breckland Council leader William Nunn to resign
The Conservative leader of a Norfolk council has said he plans to resign after "a terrific eight years".
William Nunn announced his intention to stand down from Breckland Council on Twitter.
He tweeted: "I'm sure that the Conservative group will soon find an excellent candidate to pick up the reins."
A council spokeswoman said he would formally tender his resignation at the council's meeting on 5 September.
His successor was likely to be chosen at the meeting on 3 October, she said.
