Council by-election

Just one tonight:

John O'Gaunt Ward, Lancaster DC. Lab hold. Lab 603 (35.2%, -4.9), LD 389 (22.7%, +22.7), Green 339 (19.8%, -17.5), Con 301 (17.6%, -5), UKIP 83 (4.8%, +4.8). Swing of 13.8% from Lab to LD since 2007. This is in the Lab vs Con new parliamentary marginal constituency of Lancaster & Fleetwood. The Greens have one of the three councillors in this ward and had been expecting a gain tonight.

Looks as the LD took away a great deal of Green's 2007 vote (when LD didn't stand)

I thought it was illegal to hold an election on Maundy Thursday?

Not illegal just frowned on.
