    Councillor Alan Waters in the BBC Look East studio

    Alan Waters says the proposal announced as part of plans for shared powers in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk "is the antithesis of local democracy, which is the heart of what we're all about at the city council".

    Labour councillor Mr Waters, who said an elected mayor could work for an urban conurbation such as Greater Manchester, added: "This region is a very diverse area, urban and rural across a very wide geography."
