BY-ELECTION WATCH: Four UKIP Hopefuls In Action Tonight
After several recent occasions where principal local authority by-elections were left uncontested by UKIP candidates, there is better news this evening with three out of the four principal authority vacancies up for grabs featuring a UKIP candidate, as well as one town council ward.
We start in Aylesbury Vale District Council, where former UKIP councillor Phil Gomm (pictured above) will be hoping to win the seat from the Conservatives. Also in Aylesbury Vale Geoffrey Baile will be the UKIP man in Southcort ward, where the Lib Dems are defending the seat. The town council seat in Southcort ward is also up for grabs tonight, with Debbie Huntley flying the UKIP flag.
Elsewhere, Graham Whitehead is the UKIP candidate in Peterborough UA’s Park Ward, where Labour are the defending incumbent. That leaves only the St. Mary’s ward on Forest Heath District Council with no UKIP candidate this evening, with the Tories favourites to retain the seat.
