A former Norwich city councillor has been elected as co-leader of the Green Party of England and Wales. 

Adrian Ramsay, who served on Norwich City Council from 2003 to 2011, ran on a joint ticket with Bristol city councillor Carla Denyer. 

Mr Ramsay was born and bred in Norwich, is a University of East Anglia graduate and was widely credited with making the Greens a powerful force on the city council.
