A gain from Labour in Newcastle
Breaking news: I've just been phoned by Newcastle to tell me we have gained Lemington from Labour in the byelection today. Remember this is a Lib Dem controlled council - we took it from Labour in 2004. The gain means that we now have a majority of 20 on Newcastle.
As well as being an unmitigated disaster for Labour it is worth looking at the Conservatives' performance - 4th place.
