Despite the bookies getting twitchy, the election had already been won before election day thanks to Labour's postal voting machine which generated a massive 25% postal turnout.
UKIP's vote share was up 2.8%, Labour's was up 7.3%, the Lib Dems lost their deposit and the Tories dropped 9.6% of the vote since May. Overall turnout was down 19.3% from the general election.
|Jane Brophy||Lib Dem||1,024||3.7%||0.0%|
|Sir Oink A-Lot||Monster Raving Loony||141||0.5%||N/A|
Well done to John Bickley and his team for an excellent election campaign.
