A Conservative councillor on Tendring District Council in Essex has defected to UKIP.
Anthony Calbourne has been a councillor for 12 years and says he believes the country needs a change, both nationally and locally.
Tendring is the area of NE Essex around Harwich and Clacton. Douglas Carswell won the Clacton by-election in October 2014 after defecting from the Conservatives to UKIP.
He is the sixth person to move to UKIP in the Anglia region in the past few days.
