County and district councillor Victoria Ayling has been elected chairman of the Boston and Skegness branch of UKIP.

Coun Ayling, who represents the Spilsby Fen ward and lives in Stickford, was elected into the role at a meeting on February 20.

Skegness councillor Robin Hunter-Clarke was chosen to be deputy chairman, Mandy Hunter-Clarke becomes secretary and Wyberton’s Sue Ransome is treasurer.

Coun Ayling sparked headlines when she confronted Mr Cameron at the Conservative Party conference last year to tell him why she was leaving to join UKIP and is seen as one of the contenders to challenge for the seat at the 2015 General Election.

She also made national headlines at the end of 2013 when the Mail on Sunday reported material obtained from her ex-husband.

The new chairman said: “We are attracting new members all the time and with the popularity of UKIP rising, especially in the Boston and Skegness constituency, our branch is expected to flourish. We already have activities planned and would welcome others to join us.”
