A 19-year-old Labour councillor from Goole has become the youngest mayor in the country.
Terence Smith tweeted about his 'pride' after being voted in for a 12-month term at the council's annual meeting on Thursday.
David Cameron has urged potential Ukip voters to "come home" to the Conservatives on May 7.
The Prime Minister said the General Election was "not a time to send a message or make a protest" but to stop Ed Miliband and Labour forming a government.
Cameron said: "I would say to those people that I totally understand the frustration people have felt about issues like immigration where they want more done, and we will do more.
"And I understand the frustration about Europe - where the country deserves a referendum - and with me as Prime Minister they'll get that referendum.
"But this election is not a time to send a message or make a protest. This election is about choosing the government of our country for the next five years, and the choice could not be starker between a Conservative government led by me, continuing with a plan that's working, and putting it all at risk."
Nigel Farage has said Ukip is "becoming the opposition party" in northern England following the defection of Conservative candidate Mike Whitehead earlier today.
The Ukip leader denied Whitehead had been sacked by the Conservatives before he moved parties.
"He'd been having an argument in East Yorkshire with the Conservative Party," Farage said.
"I think when you boil it down what it really comes down to is this - in the north of England the Conservative Party are beginning to disappear the way they have in Scotland, and that Ukip is now becoming the opposition party in the north of England."
