There are no longer any Liberal Democrats on North Kesteven District Council after three North Hykeham members resigned their party affiliation.

Councillors Wallace Lee, Kay Barrett and John Bishop have left the Liberal Democrat Party, and formed a new political group called ‘Hykeham Independent Group’.

This change does not affect the political balance of the council, where there are now 16 independent councillors arranged in five groups and 27 Conservative members.
