Dave Nixon, the Chairman of the Newcastle Under Lyme UKIP branch has reported a UKIP win in the Metropolitan Council election in the Woolstanton Ward.

The results were:
UKIP 475, Conservative 345, Labour 393, Lib Dem 285. UKIP win.

In the same area in the Seabridge Ward UKIP came second. The results were:
Conservative 602, UKIP 352, Labour 310, Lib Dem 302.

At the verification for the Euro elections in Walsall town hall it was showing a higher than normal turnout for the European elections with most wards showing around, or over, 40% turnout. The St Martins church hall polling station in the Park Farm Pheasey Ward there was a 60% turnout.

Mike Nattrass has said the signs look good in Erdington and Nikki Sinclaire also reported a high turnout in Solihull. Although the ballot papers for the European elections have been counted face down for the verification of the votes before the main vote on Sunday, from those ballot papers that have been glimpsed the signs are looking good for UKIP.
