Council by-elections

There were three by-elections yesterday:


Berry Hill Ward, Forest of Dean DC. Lab hold. Lab 276 (59.7%, +4.6), Con 101 (21.9%, -23), UKIP 85 (18.4%, +18.4). Swing of 13.8% from Con to Lab since 2011.

Wormholt & White City Ward, LB Hammersmith & Fulham. Lab hold. Lab 1419 (66.9%, +6.8), Con 251 (11.8%, -11.5), LD 209 (9.9%, -6.7), UKIP 122 (5.8%, +5.8), Ind 75 (3.5%, +3.5), BNP 45 (2.1%, +2.1). Swing of 9.2% from Con to Lab since 2010.

Village Ward, Stockton-on-Tees UA. Ind hold. Ind 800 (61.2%, +8.1), Lab 270 (20.6%, -11.6), UKIP 135 (10.3%, +10.3), Con 85 (6.5%, -5.3), LD 18 (1.4%, -1.5). Swing of 9.9% from Lab to Ind since 2011.

In all these results the impact on the Tories of UKIP fielding candidates is apparent.

Good results in Hammersmith (especially because the comparison is with a GE turnout) and Forest of Dean. Weak in Stockton though
