Council by-election results
Last night's council by-election results:
Princes Ward, Dartford. Labour hold with a small net swing from Con to Lab. Good result in one of the key North Kent parliamentary marginals.
Oakley Vale Ward, Corby. Con hold with a 4.5% swing from Lab. Again in a parliamentary marginal.
Fortune Green Ward, Camden. LD hold with a swing to them from their Tory coalition partners, largely achieved by squeezing the Green vote. Labour vote stable. This is a safe LD ward in the new 3-way parliamentary marginal of Hampstead & Kilburn.
Highland Ward, Perth & Kinross. SNP hold with swing to second place Tories.
Earlier in the week control of Southampton City Council changed hands to a Labour/LD administration after the Tories failed to get their budget through.
