By-election Win in Hexham West

Fantastic result tonight in the Hexham Leazes Ward, which is part of the Hexham West County Council Divison. The Conservatives have taken the seat from the Lib Dems with a great result: Con: 569 Lib: 351 Lab: 273 Turnout: 41% CON GAIN from Lib Dem Well done to everyone involved. I know the local Conservative team put in a lot of work in a tough fight with the other parties. Another big blow for the Lib Dems who not only lose the seat but this is their second by-election defeat in the town in a matter of months.
