Six new Liberal Democrat councillors

A great crop of Liberal Democrat victories last night, in council by-elections around the country:

There were Liberal Democrat gains in Fenham, Newcastle (from Labour); Valentines, London Borough of Redbridge (from Labour); Bury St Edmunds (from Independent); Axholme South (from Independent) and North and West Marlow (from Conservatives).

Didsbury West (Neil Trafford’s seat) is held with an increased majority.

Congratulations to our six new councillors and their campaign teams!

Best wishes (and a much-deserved rest) also go to talented Liberal Democrat candidate Karelia Scott-Daniels who came third in Stoke Newington, Hackney, ahead of the Conservatives.

  • Not all good news. The BNP got nearly 900 votes in Fenham.

  • There are certainly some warning signs in the Fenham result both in the BNP vote rise (which won’t have been diminished by the news of the last couple of days) and in ours.
