Lib Dems win first council by-election of the week

While the House of Commons on Tuesday was voting for a December general election, this week’s first council by-election was also taking place. The result? A Liberal Democrat win with a nice increase in the party’s vote.

Congratulations to new councillor Dan Russell, who long-time Liberal Democrat activists may recall from years back before he moved to Poland. Welcome back to the political frontline Dan!
