Lib Dems win Inverness South by-election

Congratulations to all involved in this Highland Council by-election victory. The vacancy arose after the sitting Labour councillor was found guilty of benefit fraud.

BBC News has the figures - after the final transfer of votes the Lib Dem candidate Carolyn Craddock had 1091 votes to the SNP candidate's 1084.

And according to STV, Carolyn is a former Army Major.

Presume we won't hear Danny Alexander whinge about UNISON turnout now. 26.8% voted in Inverness by election. Liberal hypocrisy.
