This week’s main council by-elections – plus 4 Lib Dem town/parish gains

Five seats up for election in four different wards in this week’s principal authority council by-elections. Three Liberal Democrat candidates and two no-shows for the party, though at least that is one down on the last time these seats were up.

Thank you to Manu Fantaisie and Alex Guerrero for being the Liberal Democrat candidates.

Thank you to Ben Morse for being the Lib Dem candidate.
