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.
Sandra Bogelein, Green opposition leader on Norwich City Council, said: “Green party members have made an excellent choice.
“Adrian’s election puts Norwich on the map and offers a chance for views from the East of England to be represented nationally.”

Ben Price, Green group leader on Norfolk County Council, said the “excellent result” was “also a real boost for Green politics in this region, where we can already see a Green surge from the results in Broadland where two new Green councillors were elected this week".
“I’ve known Adrian for a number of years and he’s been a personal inspiration to me. He has the ability, conviction and commitment to lead us to a brighter future.”
