Council by-elections

There were six council by-elections yesterday.

Winkfield & Cranbourne Ward, Bracknell Forest UA. Con hold. Con 582 (52.5%, -18.9), UKIP 318 (28.7%, +28.7), Lab 139 (12.5%, -1.4), LD 69 (6.2%, -8.5). Swing of 23.8% from Con to UKIP since 2011.

Caddington Ward, Central Bedfordshire UA. Con hold. Con 738 (39.6%, -26.9), Ind 560 (30.0%, +30), UKIP 334 (17.9%, +17.9), Lab 209 (11.2%, -10.2), LD 24 (1.3%, -10.8). Swing of 28.5% from Con to Ind since 2011.

Landward Caithness Ward, Highland UA. Result to follow.

Vassall Ward, LB Lambeth. Lab hold. Lab 1319 (59.8%, +17.4), LD 468 (21.2%, -15.5), Con 153 (6.9%, -4.9), Green 113 (5.1%, -4), UKIP 87 (3.9%, +3.9), TUSC 44 (2%, +2), SPGB 22 (1%, +1). Swing of 16.5% from LD to Lab since 2010. Given this was a split ward with one LD councillor in 2010 this result reinforces the expectation that there will be further Labour gains from the LDs in London in May.

Billinge & Seneley Green Ward, St Helens MBC. Lab hold. Lab 936 (50.7%, -12.5)
UKIP 442 (24%, +24), Con 248 (13.4%, -5.4), Green 94 (5.1%, +0.2), BNP 73 (4.0%, +4), LD 52 (2.8%, +2.7). Swing of 18.3% from Lab to UKIP since 2012.

Horbury & South Ossett Ward, Wakefield MBC. Lab hold.  Lab 1061 (39.8%, -0.7),
UKIP 856 (32.8%, +22.3), Con 504 (19.3%, -3.5), LD 212 (8.1%, -0.2). Swing of 11.5% from Lab to UKIP since 2011.
