Liberal Democrats gain Hampstead Town from the Conservatives

Continuing the party’s excellent run of by-election results in Camden (and more generally in North London), Linda Chung is the new councillor for Hampstead Town ward:

Liberal Democrat 1,242 (44.1%, +11.5%)
Conservative 1,114 (39.6%, -6.9%)
Labour 289 (10.3%, -1.0%)
Green 140 (5.0%, -3.3%)
BNP 29 (1.0%, +1.0%)

Majority: 128 (4.5%)
Swing: 9.2% Conservative to Liberal Democrat

Congratulations Linda, and a good sign for Ed Fordham and his team as this ward is in the Hampstead & Kilburn seat at the next general election (2005 notional result: Labour 36%, Liberal Democrat 35%, Conservative 23%, Others 5%).
