Aberdeenshire Council has appointed its new co-leader. Former co-leader Martin Kitts-Hayes resigned from his post after he was caught up in the Legogate scandal, leaving his SNP colleague Richard Thomson in charge. Councillors voted 32 votes to 31 to establish co-leadership. Councillor Alison Evison of Labour will join Mr Thomson as co-leader.
