Surrey Councillor defects to UKIP

Another disillusioned Tory councillor has defected to UKIP, keeping up the trend of a defection a week for 2013.

Cllr Ian Lake represents Weybridge on Surrey County Council and was cabinet member for Transport & Environment until recently when he was suspended following accusations of bringing the council into disrepute - an accusation that the council's standards board dismissed.

Cllr Lake will be standing for re-election as a UKIP Councillor in May.
