Hayward Burt, head of the Liberal Democrat Unit at Conservative Party HQ, was standing for the Conservatives in the local elections in Somerset.
He is a councillor on South Somerset authority and was standing this time for the new unitary council that’s coming.
A Liberal Democrat victory in his ward.
Congratulations Nicola and Sarah!
