Liberal Democrats maintain control of Oadby and Wigston

In all the carnage of Thursday, we should not overlook the achievement here in Leicestershire of Oadby and Wigston Liberal Democrats in maintaining control of the district council.

The new balance of the council is:

Liberal Democrat 19
Conservative 6
Labour 1

This is the first time Labour has been represented on the council for three decades.

Oadby and Wigston has been run by the Lib Dems since 1991, but then this is an area with a strong Liberal tradition.

The old Wigston UDC was run by the Liberal Party in Jo Grimond's day.
