Andy Cllr Andy Morgan-Watts, who represents the Hanworth Ward on Hounslow Council has joined the Conservatives. He was a Lib Dem councillor although then sat briefly with the independents before joining the Conservatives.

Despite not having an overall majority the Conservative led Hounslow Council has been doing an excellent job – not least in freezing the Council Tax, which is a cut in real terms. I am delighted that they continue to go from strength to strength.

Welcome aboard Cllr Morgan-Watts.
