There was a by-election today for the Winchester City Council seat in Wickham. Wickham is part of Winchester's southern parishes and is in the new Meon Valley parliamentary constituency. The by-election was caused by the sad and unexpected death of Liberal Democrat councillor Sue Fitzgerald, who had only been elected for the first time in May this year.
Here is the result:
Liberal Democrat (Angela Clear) 630 - 60.9% (May 61.1%)
Conservative 349 - 33.8% (May 36.5%)
UKIP 40 - 3.9% (May no candidate)
Labour 15 - 1.4% (May 2.4%)
An excellent result for Angela who will be a great addition to the Liberal Democrat council group.
