A YORKSHIRE and Humber Euro-MP has been chosen as the Liberal Democrats' new leader in Europe.
Diana Wallis has been elected to lead the 12-member UK Liberal Democrat group in the European Parliament.
She replaces Chris Davies, who resigned after confessing to `10 seconds of madness' in an email exchange.
He was forced to quit over an offensive email to a supporter of Israel.
After the announcement of her victory, Ms Wallis said: "Now that David Cameron wants to marginalise the Conservatives in the European Parliament and Tony Blair no longer makes any mention of Europe at all, the Liberal Democrats in Brussels are well-placed to frame the argument on the future of Europe."
