Cumbria County – Walney South:
Lab 727, UKIP 239, C 181. (May 2013 -Lab 705, C 242, UKIP 201).
Lab hold. Swing 0.6 per cent Lab to UKIP.
Analysis by the Press Association of four comparable council by-elections since March 26th – a very small sample of course – suggests a projected 2.9 per cent nationwide lead for Labour over Conservatives.
There are no more Council by-elections until the General Election on May 7th – when dozens will take place.
