Council by-elections

There were only three council by-elections yesterday.

Hornby Castle Ward, Richmondshire DC. Con hold. Con  127 (46.2%), Ind 98 (35.6%), UKIP  50 (18.2%). Conservatives were unopposed in 2011.

Iver Village and Richings Park Ward, South Buckinghamshire DC. Con gain from LD. Con 422 (46.9%, -6), UKIP 377 (41.9%, +41.9), LD 101 (11.2%, -35.9). Swing of 24% from Con to UKIP since 2011.

Bedworth West Division, Warwickshire CC. Lab hold. Lab 904 (62.6%, +4.5), Con 353 (24.4%, -2.7), UKIP 142 (9.8%), TUSC 46 (3.2%, -3.4). Swing of 3.6% from Con to Lab since May this year. A reassuring contrast to the loss of Arbury Ward seat on Nuneaton & Bedworth DC last week.
