Council by-elections

Not quite the biggest political event last night, but some straws in the wind from the two council by-elections (same place, different level councils):

Kirkgate Ward, Fenland DC. LD gain from Con. LD 287 (51.3%), Con 145 (25.9%), Lab 74 (13.2%), UKIP 54 (9.6%). Con unopposed in 2007 so no swing calculable.

Wisbech North, Cambs CC. Con hold. Con 548 (34.8%, -6.9), LD 506 (32.1%, +20), Lab 287 (18.2%, +2.7), UKIP 233 (14.8%, -15.9). Swing of 13.5% from Con to LD since 2009.
