Labour wins Loughton & Shenley by-election

Results have been declared for the Loughton & Shenley ward by-election on Milton Keynes City Council and Labour have stormed to victory with 46% of the vote.

Despite being a wet and rainy half-term day, meaning turnout was very low, over 1000 people still voted for local resident Leo Montague to be their newest City Councillor.

He joins a popular local Labour team, where Councillors Shanika Mahendran and Zoe Nolan have been working hard for residents, including tackling litter, getting play parks refurbished and supporting local charities and businesses.

The by-election was called after the previous councillor had to resign for health reasons.

Leo said, “I’m delighted to have had so much support in standing to be a local councillor for the area. I live here with my young family, so I understand the issues that local people are facing and I want to work hard to help support them.

It’s exciting to be joining such a hardworking local Labour team and I will hit the ground running getting things done for all the residents of Loughton & Shenley ward, whether they voted for me or not.

The fact Conservatives are claiming this loss is a good result for them shows how delusional they are, and how Labour are now building towards a first majority on the council in 28 years and electing 3 Labour MPs when the General Election comes.”

This result follows two hugely successful national by-election results for Labour last week in Wellingborough & Kingswood.
