Labour were the party with most to be happy about after the 13 Norwich by-elections (or delayed elections) that took place yesterday.
The Lib Dems lost one of their two seats to Labour, with the Conservatives losing both of theirs. The Greens, who had hoped for a breakthrough, held five seats but failed to make any gains.

The Lib Dems were down one on one seat
The Conservatives didn’t win any seats, compared to two in 2008
If my sums are right, that means the new makeup of Norwich City Council is:
Lib Dem: 5
