Last Day For Weymouth's Deposed Mayor

6:19am 29th May 2014

It's the last day in office for Weymouth Mayor Ray Banham.

He failed to get re-elected in Melcombe Regis ward in last Thursday's elections so has to give up his civic role.

Kate Wheller will get the robes of office tonight with Christine James as her deputy.

Speaking after the vote last week, Mr Banham said he was shocked, after 14 years of serving the public. He now had some free time he wasn't expecting and had yet to work out how to spend it. He had not yet decided whether he would stand again as a councillor in Weymouth and Portland.
