Councillor Steve Tierney has resigned as executive officer for the North East Cambridgeshire Conservative Association (NECCA) for “personal reasons” and to concentrate on his election campaign.

As chairman of the branch he automatically takes the executive post which he has held for four years.

He said: “I thought I would concentrate on the Wisbech campaign and take myself out of the top level of the executive post.

“There are personal reasons but it’s not something serious, it’ not a big issue.

“The leadership style suits some and others not, so I’m instead working hard to deliver Conservative candidates across the area I live in.
