Liberal Democrat gains in Hampton and Hampton North

The results are in for our local wards and the Liberal Democrats have gained a seat from the Conservatives in both the Hampton and Hampton North wards.

On a night which saw the Lib Dem Party gain 24 seats, and the Green Party gain 4 seats from the Conservatives in the borough as a whole, turnout was higher in both of our local wards compared to the local elections in 2014.

In the Hampton ward, the Lib Dems had a comfortable win over their nearest rivals with Conservative Tim Rosser coming in fourth, and receiving just under 600 fewer votes than third place.

Hampton North saw a much closer fight, with only 47 votes between Avril Coelho (LD) who came first, to fourth place Martin Seymour (CON).
