HERE'S the new Ipswich mayor showing his true colours to the world!

On the day that H'Angus the Monkey – Hartlepool United's mascot – rocked the political world of the North East by being elected mayor of the town, Richard Risebrow was chosen as Ipswich's new mayor-elect.

This comes two years after his dream of becoming first citizen was thwarted when he lost his seat on the council.

But he found comfort by showing his true colours as he travelled to Wembley to support Ipswich in the play-off final against Barnsley.
