Lib Dems victorious in SW Surrey

December 14, 2017 1:00 PM

Winning in 2017In the two unusual Wednesday by-elections in Godalming, the Lib Dem candidate Paul Follows won the vacant seats on both Godalming Town and Waverley Borough councils, previously held by Conservatives.

[In case you wondered, the venue for the count wasn't available for a more usual Thursday poll.]

This adds to an already outstanding run of by-election successes for the Liberal Democrats, the only major national party with an overall net increase in council seats in 2017.
