Council by-elections

As well as the impressive Inverclyde parliamentary by-election result, there were very good swings to Labour in the only two council by-elections yesterday, both in safe Tory wards:


Cheshunt Central Ward, Broxbourne DC. Con hold. Con 742 (53.1%, -14.8), Lab 481 (34.4%, +14), UKIP 88 (6.3%, +6.3), Ind 62 (4.4%, +4.4), LD 24 (1.7%, +1.7). Swing of 14.4% from Con to Lab since May this year.


Thamesfield Ward, LB Wandsworth. Con hold. Con 1497 (45.8%, -12.1), Lab 1022 (32.3%, +15.5), LD 545 (16.7%, +1.7); Green 202 (6.2%, -4.1). Swing of 13.8% from Con to Lab since 2010.
