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.

Mr Nunn became a councillor in 1995 and took over as leader in 2005.

He will remain Conservative councillor for West Guiltcross.
