Sir Sandy Bruce-Lockhart, the chairman of the Local Government Association, has been made a working peer in recognition of his services to local government.

The Conservative former leader of Kent CC has pledged to take his fight for extra powers for councils to the upper house.

Sir Sandy said: 'I think this is recognition of both the LGA and it's also some recognition of the success of many people at Kent.

'There are so many issues concerning local government and I think this will be a good opportunity to promote many of them.'

Conservative rules restrict the 63-year-old fruit farmer to serving another 14 months as LGA chairman.
