New Tory councillor James Lusted is Conservative party's shortest politician - at just 3ft 7ins tall

New Tory councillor James Lusted was today elected as the Conservative party's shortest politician - at just 3ft 7ins tall.

The part-time pantomime actor pledges to measure up to the challenge of politics - despite being more than two feet shorter than 5ft 8in PM Theresa May.

James, 29, today elected as a county councillor in his hometown of Rhos on Sea in Conwy, North Wales.

James said: "I will ensure that I listen to the residents, not just the younger or the older generation, but every generation from whatever background – everyone will have a voice."

Married James is an actor who performs in Christmas pantomimes of Snow White.

He hit the headlines when he took his own step-ladder to church to stand next to his 5ft 7in bride, trainee teacher Chloe.

Speaking to the Daily Post last year, James said: "Chloe and I met the day I carried the Olympic torch through Rhos on Sea in 2012.

Both his parents are of average height but carried a rare gene. His older brother Phil is also a dwarf.

Results are currently pouring in for thousands of seats across 88 councils in the 2017 local elections .

With 88 councils up for grabs just 34 days before the general election, Theresa May's party won new control of FIVE councils in early counting overnight and has continued to make steady gains. With the Tories resurgent in Scotland, Labour lost control of Glasgow council for the first time since 1980.
