Sarah Adams holds St John's division with swing to Labour

The results from yesterday's by-elections are in.  Labour candidate, Sarah Adams, held St John's division with an increased majority and an increased share of the vote. 

Elsewhere in the County, Labour won Sudbury South on Babergh District Council by a single vote.


Full result:

LABOUR: 1247 votes  62.9% (+5.3)

CONSERVATIVE: 483 votes  24.4% (-7.3)

LIBDEM: 200 votes  10.1% (+5.1)

GREEN: 52 votes  2.6% (-3.1)
