Labour will bid to run Stockport council for another year despite falling further behind the Lib Dems at the local elections.

Councillor Elise Wilson, Labour and town hall leader since 2018, has confirmed she will again stand for the top job at next week’s annual council meeting.

She will be up against Lib Dem leader Coun Mark Hunter, whose group bolstered its claim to run the council with another strong showing at the ballot box last Thursday.

The Lib Dems made two gains at the Tories expense - pulling off shock wins in both Bramhall wards - meaning they now have 28 elected councillors to Labour’s 25.
