Lib Dems win clean sweep of by-elections


The Liberal Democrats won all four of the council by-elections that were held last night, gaining seats from the Conservatives, Labour and UKIP.

The sweep of victories means that the Liberal Democrats have gained seven council seats in November, significantly more than any other party.

The Liberal Democrats, under Vince Cable, are winning seats up and down the country and against all opposition.
