Lib Dems miss out by just 14 votes in Tuesday by-election

Tuesday is not a usual day for council by-elections, though it is the most commonly used day for those rare occasions when polling isn’t on a Thursday.

Tuesday contests have also often brought good news for the Lib Dems, though this time it’s good news tinged by disappointment at just missing out on gaining a seat from the Conservatives:

Congratulations and commiserations to Harry Ashcroft and the team.

These by-election results round-ups cover principal authority by-elections. See my post The danger in celebrating parish and town council wins for your own party for the reasons to avoid straying too often into covering town, parish or community council by-elections.
