Is my good friend Lynden Thorpe, who tonight won the hotly contested Squirrel's Heath by election. The Conservative campaign was well planned, well supported and extremely hard work, which paid off with the following result:
National Liberals 170
Spoiled papers 5
On a low turnout in a strong ward, this still represented a swing to us from the residents and Labour. The Labour result was particularly poor.
I am looking forward to working with Cllr Thorpe, who will be a great member of our authority.
