13th October, 2017 4:00 pm

Labour held five seats in council by-elections last night as the slide in the UKIP vote continued.

Jeremy Corbyn’s party, which has been buoyed by a series of strong national poll ratings, retained wards in Wakefield, Wyre in Lancashire, Warrington, Sheffield and Tamworth in Staffordshire.

The Tories lost a seat to the Lib Dems in Three Rivers in Hertfordshire and to an independent candidate in Ashfield in Nottinghamshire.
