Council by-election

Unusually for the middle of a General Election campaign, there was a council by-election yesterday. Result: a Labour gain in Essex (admittedly a very idiosyncratic part of Essex - Jaywick):

Golfs Green Ward, Tendring DC. Lab gain from Community Representation Party. Lab 409 (28.2%, -1.2%), Con 404 (27.9%, +7.5), Tendring First 313 (21.6%, -28.6), BNP 139 (9.6%, +9.6), Ind 120 (8.3%, +8.3), LD 63 (4.4%, +4.4). Swing of 4.4% from Lab to Con since 2007.
