Lib Dems 660;
Previous councillors in Kingsbrook ward include Dan Rogerson MP and the Mayor of Bedford, Dave Hodgson.
Henry Vann, PPC for Bedford and Kempston said,
Two government ministers visited during the campaign – including their “election guru” Douglas Alexander. This is an abysmal result for Labour and technically the first electoral test of the pre-budget report.
