Liberal Democrat Caroline Pidgeon has won back a seat on the London Assembly.
She owes her place to the London-wide top-up list which first enabled her to sit in the Assembly in 2008. The announcement followed the London assembly constituency declarations on Friday.
It is expected that she will continue as Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group.
Caroline Pidgeon was been a member of Southwark Council from 1998 until 2010 when she was councillor for Newington ward. She also served as executive member for children's services and education and helped to establish the borough's eight community councils.
In the 2010 General Election, Caroline Pidgeon was Liberal Democrat candidate in the Vauxhall constituency against Labour incumbent Kate Hoey.
