Sunderland City Council leader Colin Anderson has been ousted in a behind the scenes Labour power shuffle. Mr Anderson, after three years at the top, has become the first Labour group leader to be voted out by his own colleagues since the late 1960s. He has been replaced by challenger Bob Symonds in a coup which saw him winning 40 votes to Mr Anderson's 22.

Gateshead Council leader George Gill (Lab) has resigned after 17 years. Prime minister Tony Blair led the praise for Mr Gill who has been a councillor for the same ward for almost 30 years.
