Yesterday there was a by-election in the Clee ward of the new unitary Shropshire council.
The result was
Richard Huffer (Liberal Democrat) 946
Liberal Democrat gain from Conservative
The previous Conservative councillor Paul Andrews resigned after being found guilty of misconduct and suspended for six months.
A.E. Housman adds:
From Clee to heaven the beacon burns,
The shires have seen it plain,
From north and south the sign returns
And beacons burn again.
