Lead singer of Fight the Bear holds Bishop's Castle for Lib Dems

Last night the Liberal Democrats comfortably held my favourite Shropshire town:
Note that Labour's intervention made little difference and the Greens, who once had high hopes of this end of the county, actually went backwards.

The by-election was caused by the resignation of Charlotte Barnes for family reasons. I met her in the days when it was easier for me to get over to Shropshire and I am sure she was a very good councillor.

She also fought the Ludlow constituency for the Lib Dems at the last general election.

The new councillor for Bishop's Castle is Jonny Keeley who, among many other things, is lead singer with the band Fight the Bear.
