A leadership challenge within the ruling Conservative group on Suffolk County Council has failed.

Councillor Colin Noble put himself up for election against party leader Mark Bee at the Tory-run local authority.

The Conservatives voted against a change in leadership.

Councillor Guy McGregor's challenge to deputy leader Lisa Chambers also failed to win enough support among the 39 Conservative councillors.
