Victory as Tories take third seat

THE Conservative Party have a clean sweep of the council seats in Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze ward.

A by-election on May 24, held after long-serving Liberal Democrat councillor Clare Campion-Smith stood down for health reasons, saw the Tory candidate Steve Smith from Westbury-on-Trym win by 196 votes over his closest rival, Lib Dem Graham Donald.

Labour's Teresa Stratford was in third place in the poll and the Greens' Ian Moss fourth.

Delighted at his victory, Mr Smith thanked the voters of Westbury and Henleaze for their faith in him: “Residents told me this has been liveliest election they have seen in recent years. I’m please to have worked on it with my colleagues Graham, Teresa and Ian.

“I fought it on the future of public services and don’t want see them reduced.”
