The 26-year-old, who works as a teaching assistant at Tudor Primary School, said he wants to see more young people and diversity across both councils.

“I think people are fed-up of the failed promises and the lack of action,” he said.

If elected, Mr Cresswell said one of the issues he would focus on addressing is traffic and pollution in Sudbury.
