by Gareth Wilson on 29 April, 2014




  Yesterday the Liberal Democrats stormed to victory in Sutton, East Cambridgeshire. Lorna Dupre gained the seat previously held by the Conservative Council Leader.

Cllr Dupre came from third place in 2011 to take 50.9% of the vote (an increase of 27%). The Conservative and Labour candidates saw large drops in their support. The Tories dropped to second with 27.2% (-19.2%), UKIP who did not stand in 2011 came third with 15.8% and Labour came in last with 6.1% (-23.6%)
