I would like to thank everyone who voted in the by-election in St Mary’s Ward. A turnout of more than 25 per cent was a great result for a damp December Friday.
Thanks especially to the 223 who voted Labour, giving us our best share of the vote for many years.
I was disappointed that we didn’t win this time, of course. But again Labour scored a decisive victory over both UKIP and the Greens.
The Labour Party candidate
St Mary’s Ward
