Former Lib Dem councillor in Wisbech defects to UKIP

A former Lib Dem councillor in Wisbech has defected to UKIP.

Cllr David Patrick resigned from the Lib Dems last year along with fellow councillor Rob McLaren saying that "a chasm has developed between us and the Liberal Democrats". Cllr McLaren has since joined the Tories but Cllr Patrick has decided to join UKIP.

There has been no love lost in the past between Cllr Patrick and UKIP county councillor and chairman of UKIP Wisbech, Cllr Alan Ley, but he got a warm welcome from Cllr Ley regardless:
He has shown how committed he is to serving his residents and we believe he will be an invaluable hard-working member and dedicated councillor,
