Council by-election results
More evidence of the incredibly competitive state of the fight between the two main parties from last night's council by-elections:
Tamworth BC, Castle Ward - Lab gain from Con - Tory maj of 181 in May turned into Lab maj of 6. This is in a key parliamentary marginal with a majority of about 2,500.
Guildford BC, Holy Trinity Ward - Con gain from LD
Telford and Wrekin UA, Brookside Ward - Con gain from Lab picking up second seat in what had been a split ward in May
