Last night there were 7 by elections held around the county. We had one Labour defence, 5 Tory defences, and one Independent.

  • Codsall South (South Staffs) – Con HOLD
  • Codsall (Staffordshire) – Con HOLD
  • East Brighton (Brighton & Hove) – Lab HOLD
  • Hartside (Eden) – Con HOLD
  • Stretton (East Staffs) – Con HOLD
  • Tophill East (Weymouth & Portland) – Con GAIN from Independent
  • Tophill West (Weymouth & Portland) – Con HOLD

Pretty much ‘as you were’ following these elections but it is worth noting that Labour’s vote share increased in every ward contested except for Stretton (down 2 points).
