Liberal Democrats win unusual Tuesday by-election in Cardiff with 15% swing from Conservatives

Six council by-elections this week, including a trio of Liberal Democrat defences and a rare Tuesday polling day for the by-election in Cardiff (a place that seems to be making a habit of using Tuesdays). Plus also a Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) by-election.

Cyncoed, Cardiff

The Tuesday by-election is a Liberal Democrat defence with Robert Hopkins standing.

Note, once again, how it is the Liberal Democrats eating into Conservative support, not the nominal official opposite that is the Labour Party.
