Harbour Ward Election Result

The result of the Harbour ward by-election was

Jeanette Williams (Labour), 463
Brigid Whiteside (Conservative), 337
Bill Pugh (BNP) 245

Labour Hold: majority 126.

As I previously indicated, Harbour is a normally safe Labour ward. This represents a closer result than usual as between Conservatives and Labour for this ward.

The Conservative campaign team worked extremely hard in the ward and I would like to thank all those who took part in our campaign for the by election. We did entertain hopes of an even better result but this was a respectable performance for Harbour ward.

As I predicted, the BNP were in third place.
