The turnout was 18%  –  higher than the usual turnout in local byelections and much higher than the turnout in the Tory Government’s unwanted and unloved elections for Police Commissioners.

Gordon scored 611 votes – routing the Tories by achieving nearly twice as many votes  (349 votes) – and far more than UKIP’s 117 votes.

“George Parish has been an outstanding Councillor for Ruscote for more than 20 years,” said Gordon in his acceptance speech. “But I shall do my best to follow in  his footsteps.”
