For the first time ever, Edinburgh council has a Liberal Democrat leader.
The Liberal Democrats and the SNP have formed a coalition to seize control of Edinburgh City Council, despite being at loggerheads over the return of trams. The move has stunned Labour, which has run Edinburgh for the last 23 years.
The red roses may be in full bloom at the City Chambers, but Labour’s relationship with the Lib Dems has officially withered. Today the Liberal Democrat group leader sat down with her counterpart from the SNP and signed a coalition agreement.
