Labour goes Forth

On a night marked by its success in a Parliamentary byelection in Scotland, the Labour Party also kept two vulnerable council seats in the main Scottish cities. The first was in Forth ward, Edinburgh city council, and the second was Andy Muir’s victory in Bailieston ward of Glasgow city council.

An Independent candidate took Whissendine ward on Rutland county council from the Conservatives. The Conservatives did manage to keep Valley ward on Waltham Forest borough council.

There is one party switch to report: Denise Summers, elected as a Liberal Democrat in Aylesbury South division of Buckinghamshire county council, has joined the Conservatives.
