Corby Labour group have returned 17 town councillors

Every seat on Corby’s new town council has been taken by Labour.

The group will now take control of the newly-formed authority that emerged from the wreckage of the abolition of the borough and county councils.

Initially the town council will have limited powers but it is eventually hoped it will take charge of some of the borough’s parks and gardens, large community events and potentially the cemetery.
