Just got the news through now of a stunning Lib Dem gain from Labour in the Kirkleatham by-election in Redcar, Teeside, in the North East. By-election held yesterday. Here's the result:
John Hannon (Lib Dem) 1031
Paul Dixon (Lab) 486
Brian Mundy (Con) 204
Dawn Castle (BNP) 106
Well done our colleagues in Redcar and Cleveland.
