Schoolgirl (18) one of youngest UK councillors

A schoolgirl has became one of the youngest councillors in the UK after winning a seat on Plymouth City Council yesterday.

Labour's Kate Taylor (18), an A-level student at Notre Dame RC School in Plymouth, took to Twitter to speak of her delight.

"It's been an exhausting campaign but . . . I can't even put into words how amazing it feels," she said.

The teenager is not a stranger to politics having been a member of the UK Youth Parliament.
