Mike Oborski, the former Leader of Wyre Forest district who also sat on Worcestershire county council, died at the weekend after a long battle with cancer. He was a member of the Liberal Party who stayed with it after the mass of the party had joined the Liberal Democrats.

Kevin Gardner, a former Lord Mayor of Westminster and a Conservative councillor for 25 years, died on the same date.

In other news, Wayne Muldoon, elected as a Labour councillor on Charnwood borough council, has joined RESPECT.

Update: As noted in the comments, the chairman of Malvern Hills district council has joined the Liberal Democrat group.
