Lib Dems hold Waterside, North Norfolk

From the Norfolk Evening News:

The Liberal Democrats have held on to the Waterside seat on North Norfolk District Council in a by-election caused by the resignation of former council leader Simon Partridge.

His place is taken by Paul Williams, whose 494 votes edged out Conservative Paul Rice who polled 410 in a six-way fight that saw a turnout of 42pc in the ward which covers Catfield, Potter Heigham, Ludham and Hickling.

Labour’s Denise Burke was third with 246 just ahead of UKIP’s Jeffrey Parkes with 233.

Bringing up the rear were the Green Party’s Anne Filgate with 73 and Jean Partridge, Mr Partridge’s wife, who stood as an independent and came bottom with 69.

  • That would appear to be from the Eastern Daily Press. Archant also owns the North Norfolk News and the Norwich Evening News who no doubt will use the same story on their respective websites.

    A very good result in a part of North Nofolk that has never been the best territory for the Lib Dems. And, no, as Simon suggests, there is no such thing as the ‘Norfolk’ Evening News, Helen 🙂
