Congratulations and well done to Mark and the Labour Party. Given the national backdrop this by-election result is truely sensational.

The results show that the Liberal Democrats with their negative campaigning, failure to present any policy, coupled with the abysmal record when they ran the Council they have no future here in Princes.
