The latest updates on local electoral information are as follows.
Cambridgeshire: The byelection in Wisbech South division was won by Samantha Hoy. Conservative gain from an Independent who had been elected for the UK Independence Party.
Kettering: The postponed election for three seats in Rothwell ward held on 4 June was won by Alan Mills (Labour), Karl Sumpter (Conservative) and Margaret Talbot (Conservative). This is no change in terms of party composition, but sitting Conservative councillor Ian Jelley has lost his seat.
Tendring: This week saw a return to the fold by four of the nine councillors who were elected for the UK Independence Party but formed the breakaway ‘Tendring UKIP’ group last week. The five remaining ‘Tendring UKIP’ members have now had their membership suspended by party headquarters.
Barnsley: Dearne North ward, after the death of Labour councillor Dave Sim. Term ends 2018.
Bournemouth: An election petition has been lodged, challenging the result of the May election in Kinson South ward. The petition is prompted by confusion at the start of polling day when ballot papers intended for Kinson North ward were sent to polling stations in Kinson South ward, and vice versa.
