Geat Horton by-election Result

We had a good night on Thursday 24th November, as people went to the polls in Great Horton after a Labour councillor resigned.

UKIP came a very credible 4th place with 8.6% of the vote, just behind the Lib Dems.

Having never stood here before this was a really good start in the ward, especially as we have identified some very strong pockets of support for UKIP.

The full results are:

Lab 1993 58.3% (-17.1%)
Tory 707 20.6% (+5.2%)
Lib 337 9.8% (+0.6%)
UKIP 294 8.6% (+8.6%) - Candidate Jason Smith
Green 73 2.1% (+2.1%)

Rejected 15

Turnout 3417 (27.19%)
