A split in the Labour group has put an end to the Liberal Democrat/Labour coalition which had been in control of Portsmouth city council. Two Labour councillors recently left the party over the selection of candidate for the Nelson ward byelection, and formed an Independent group which supported the executive. The remaining members of the Labour group have now left the coalition and there is now a Liberal Democrat/Independent group executive.
