Labour defies the tide to take Tory seat
Labour defied the trend to make its first council by-election gain of 2009.
Candidate Rohini Simbodyal snatched a seat from Tories at Jubilee ward in north London's Enfield Borough.
This cuts Conservatives' majority on the authority to three.
The Tories defended another marginal in the capital when they won at Waddon, Croydon Borough.
But, in a big shift to Labour, Conservatives saw their majority slashed at Cannock West in Staffordshire's Cannock Chase District.
Cannock Chase District - Cannock West: C 654, Lab 333, Lib Dem 93. (May 2008 - C 1417, Lab 480). C hold. Swing 9.8% C to Lab.
Croydon London Borough - Waddon: C 1462, Lab 1222, BNP 157, Lib Dem 150, Green 115, Ukip 48, People's Choice 13, Monster Raving Loony 11. (May 2006 - Three seats C 2335, 2285, 2215, Lab 2040, 1973, 1942, Green 485, Lib Dem 402, 395, Pensions Action Alliance 135, 133, 117). C hold. Swing 0.9% Lab to C.
Enfield London Borough - Jubilee: Lab 1346, C 1049, Lib Dem 69, Green 60, Ukip 59, Ind 41. (May 2006 - Three seats Lab 1543, C 1539, Lab 1521, C 1431, Lab 1427, C 1281, Green 468). Lab gain from C. Swing 4.4% C to Lab.
South Northamptonshire District - Grange Park: C 407, Lib Dem 128. (May 2008 - Two seats C unopposed). C hold.
