Council by-elections: Labour holds seats with increased vote share


Labour have held the seats they were defending on a bumper night for council ward by-elections.

Seven seats were contested yesterday in various wards across the country. The two, of three, Labour wards that have declared so far have shown Labour holds.

The results, via Britain Elects, show a rise in vote share in Middlesbrough, with a 17.6 point increase for Labour in the Ayresome ward the party held. There was also an 11.9 point rise in another Middlesbrough ward, which was won by an independent, as well as a small 0.1 point rise in a Lib Dem held ward in Three Rivers.
