The first Labour leader with majority control of Redbridge Council is to be sworn in tonight.

Cllr Jas Athwal will be the focus of the ceremony at Redbridge Town Hall, in High Road, Ilford, at 7.15pm.

He will take over from Conservative Keith Prince, after Labour took control of the council from a Tory/Lib Dem coalition in last month's election.

It is the first meeting of the full newly-elected council.
