UKIP controls Ramsey Town Council

The biggest success of the English local elections last week (other than me being elected unopposed to Stirchley & Brookside Parish Council, naturally) was in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire.

UKIP now has 9 town councillors in Ramsey out of a possible 17 making Ramsey Town Council the first UKIP-controlled council in the UK.  UKIP also retained the Cambridgeshire County Council seat for Ramsey and the two out of three Huntingdonshire District Council seats for Ramsey.

Lisa Duffy has been elected as Mayor of Ramsey.
