And one impressive result in a parish council by-election has reached our attention:

Chester Conservatives have gained both available seats in the Huntington parish by-election. James Scargill and Paul Sheen won almost 60% of the vote in a Parish that was the Lib Dems safest only last year. The by-election followed the resignation of two Liberal Democrat Parish Councillors.

Paul Sheen (Con) 287
James Scargill (Con) 281
Labour 107
Labour 105
Lib Dem 101
Lib Dem 73
UKIP 16

Turnout was 33% and the swing from Lib Dem to Tory was calculated as 24%.
