James McCorkell was elected to Limavady Borough Council in 2011 and continued serving when neighbouring local authorities merged to form Causeway Coast and Glens.

Declaring himself independent in statement to the Chronicle and Northern Constitution, he said recent infighting had left him bitterly let down.

And he suggested the party had “lost its soul.”
