A female councillor who was born a man has been sworn in as the UK’s first transgender mayor.

Liberal Democrat Jenny Bailey, 45, who underwent a sex change operation when she was in her 30s, will become the civic leader of Cambridge City Council.

Ms Bailey’s mayoress is her partner, former councillor Jennifer Liddle, who also underwent a sex change.

Ms Bailey said she was honoured that her fellow councillors had chosen her to be mayor of Cambridge.
