Labour and Lib Dems coalition for Cumbria County Council

A Labour and Liberal Democrats coalition is set to lead Cumbria County Council.

It follows a week of uncertainty after the local election results and will replace the former Labour-Conservative administration.

It is expected that six Cabinet seats will go to Labour and four will go to the Liberal Democrats.

The leader of the council will be named at a full council meeting on Thursday.
