Councillor Evans remains in post as representative for Longden.

Three councillors are now confirmed as standing for the post of leader, Ludlow Councillor Andy Boddington, Chirbury & Worthen Councillor Heather Kidd , and Shrewsbury's Underdale Councillor David Vasmer.

The result will be announced on June 21.

The Liberal Democrats are the second largest party on Shropshire Council with 14 seats.
