Council by-election

Just one council by-election on Thursday, confirming the pattern of recent weeks of the LDs performing better locally in their strong areas than nationally:

Bilton Ward, Harrogate BC. LD gain from Con. LD 623 (46%, +8.8), Con 395 (29.2%, -16.1), Lab 208 (15.4%, -2.1), UKIP 127 (9.4%, +9.4). Swing of 12.5% from Con to LD since 2011.
