Stephen Purcell, ex-leader of Glasgow City Council, has resigned as a councillor today according to STV news.
The 37-year-old was one of Labour's rising stars and his sudden resignation from the post of leader of Scotland's largest council earlier in the week caused some drama in Scottish politics. It was said at the time he would continue to serve as a councillor.
Now he has left politics altogether. A loss for many.
Thanks to Mark for his sharp eyes.
