West Dorset District Council has a new leader.

Councillor Anthony Alford was voted in today (8th Janary) after Robert Gould stepped down to become leader of Dorset County Council.

He told Wessex FM: ""I'm pleased to have been elected as district council leader. Local government is going through some big changes and will continue to face huge financial challenges in the future. I'm confident we can continue to successfully face these challenges head on."

"I would also like to thank Robert Gould for his years of service to the role and wish him the best as leader of county council."

Councillor Alford has represented the Netherbury Ward on the district council since May 2003 and has been the vice chairman of the Executive Committee since 2007.
