EXCLUSIVE: Robin Hunter-Clarke and Victoria Ayling set to Return to Tory Fold?

There's a serious rumour doing the rounds today that UKIP County Councillors Victoria Ayling and Robin Hunter Clarke are sensationally on the brink of returning to the Conservatives.

It follows news that the pair were stripped of their Deputy Leader roles within the UKIP Group on Lincolnshire County Council.

Councillor's Ayling and Hunter-Clarke represent Spilsby Fen and Skegness South wards respectively.

A letter leaked to the Lincolnshire Echo detailing the demotions has today been confirmed by Lincolnshire Party Leader Chris Pain.
