Lib Dems gain Leatherhead seat in first post-referendum elections

July 3, 2016 9:32 PM

Happy Face 2Congratulations to Joe Crome and the Lib Dem Focus team in Mole Valley, who have gained Leatherhead North with a spectacular 19.5% swing from the Conservatives.

As reported on Twitter by @britainelects ("Britain Elects") the resuls were:

  • LDEM: 56.6% (+27.4)
  • CON: 22.3% (-11.7)
  • UKIP: 10.3% (-7.9)
  • LAB: 8.9% (-5.7)
  • GRN: 1.8% (-2.1)

This Mole Valley district council by election, held just a week after the EU referendum, saw a Lib Dem majority of 4% in May transformed to an extraordinary 34% in June.

This has been the most astonishing week in British politics since 1945.
