Harrow Borough Council is due have a new administration take control at a meeting this evening.

The Labour party, which won a majority of council seats at May’s local elections, will formally take over the running of the authority at the annual meeting tonight.

Leader of the group Cllr David Perry is expected to become the new leader of the council after appointing his cabinet earlier this week.

In the elections Labour won 34 seats to the Conservative group's 26, with independents winning two and Lib Dems retaining their single seat.

The council's annual general meeting will take place from 6pm at the Harrow Civic Centre, in Station Road.
