A new poll is set to take place next month to replace a West Norfolk councillor who was only re-elected in the spring.

Thomas Smith last month announced his decision to stand down as county councillor for the Gaywood South division because of work commitments.

The move came just a few weeks after Mr Smith, a Conservative, won a second term at County Hall.
