Considering the Lib Dems lost their deposit here only six weeks ago this was a brilliant result, but sadly, just 14 votes from a stunning victory.

I wouldnt read too much into these reults in small Welsh communties - they are often decided on the person standing, not political allegiances. I know, I come fro these parts.

Actually, it's not a 'small' Welsh community, it's one of the wards in Bangor!
