From the Independent:
Liberal Democrats celebrated a gain in the latest council by-elections from Tories who, however, defended two other marginal seats and control of South Cambridgeshire District.
Andrew Bannerman triumphed for Lib Dems at Quarry and Coton Hill, Shropshire despite a strong intervention by Labour which did not fight last time.
The result in Quarry and Coton Hill:
LD Andrew Bannerman 356 (41.8; +5.7)
Con 268 (31.5; -12.1)
Lab 197 (23.1; +23.1)
Ind 30 (3.5; -2.3)
[Green (0.0; -14.4)]
LD gain from Con
Percentage change is since June 2009.
Heather Kidd, Councillor Bannerman’s agent, said:
This was a great team event for Lib Dems in Shropshire. We worked hard, got lots of paper out and ran a full election day.
Labour worked hard and tried hard to switch our vote but it did not work well enough! They fought an election on national issues and it did have a real affect. An 8.9% swing from the Tories was worth all the effort.
In Bourn, South Cambridgeshire DC, Liberal Democrat Nick Glynn came second behind the Conservative candidate.
In Kenton, in the London Borough of Brent, Liberal Democrat Chunilal Hirani was in fourth place as the Conservatives held the seat.
