Warren Bradley was suspended and eventually expelled from the Liberal Democrats following allegations of electoral fraud which he later admitted in Court, he contested the 2012 elections as an Independent.[2]

In May 2013, Liberal Democrat Rosie Jolly, who faced re-election in 2014, defected to the Labour Party.[3] She was re-elected.

In June 2013, Jake Morrison resigned his membership of the Labour Party, due partly to internal disputes with the local Labour MP and partly over disillusionment with national Labour policies.[4]

In April 2017, Helen Casstles stood down citing conflicting work commitments.
