Newly elected members of Wellingborough Town Council will meet for the first time tonight (Wednesday).

North Northamptonshire Council replaced the former Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough and East Northants councils on April 1.

The move to two unitary authorities serving the north and west of the county has also led to the formation of new town councils, including in Wellingborough.
