Waltham Forest recount: judge to report to election court

The result of the election recount for High Street ward in Waltham Forest is now expected to be announced early in September.

The recount took place in private last Friday before a judge at the High Court after a member of the public spotted a potential error at the original count on May 6. It was thought that 1,000 votes may have been mistakenly added to each of the Labour candidates’ tallies.

If this was the case, it would have led to Labour’s Steve Terry being elected instead of Liberal Democrat Mahmood Hussain.
