Lib Dems win Harborough by-election

In what I hope is an omen for the county elections, where the count will start later this morning, the Liberal Democrats comfortably held a Harborough District Council ward in a by-election.

Thurnby & Houghton

Peter Elliott (Lib Dem) 1341
Simon Whelband (Con) 785
(turn out - 38.5 per cent)

The by-election was caused by the death of the Liberal Democrat councillor Jan Tooley.
