Congratulations to Nancy Platt and Labour for a convincing win that was widely predicted.

George Taylor fought a convincing campaign where his status as the youngest candidate created a great talking point. Sadly this was not converted into more votes than at the last by-election in the ward.

George said: "It's been a great experience and a steep learning curve. Thanks to the team who worked so hard. I'll be back and up for the fight in 2019.

"I'm a glass half full kind of person and I've caught the politics bug. We need to examine our campaign and draw the right conclusions for the future."
