Blur drummer David Rowntree wins council seat for Labour after years of activism for party

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has been elected to Norfolk County Council.

The Britpop star has been a Labour Party activist since 2002, and stood for the party in the University Ward in Norwich.

Rowntree has been the happy recipient of a string of Brit Awards for his work with Blur, but it's the first time he's won an election.

He's previously put himself forward for selection as a parliamentary candidate and ran as a councillor in London without success.

He said he was "delighted and humbled" to be elected as a councillor .

Overall, the council was a Conservative gain.
