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 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.
