Jake Cooper has become one of the UKs youngest councillors after winning in yesterday’s local elections.
In a narrow victory Jake secured the seat for the Belle Vale borough for the Conservatives by just 126 votes ousting the sitting Labour candidate Ian Cooper.
Jake was up all night at the count and admitted he was surprised when the victory was declared with him as the winner. Jake came straight to college from the celebrations to resume his studies but took a few moments out to be congratulated by the Principal and record a piece to camera for the BBC.
