Lib Dems snatch Tory council seat

There was better news for embattled Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg today when Liberal Democrats captured a seat from their Tory coalition partners in the latest council by-elections.







George Fussey overturned a comfortable Tory majority to take the Eton and Castle seat at Windsor and Maidenhead.



Elsewhere saw no change with Labour and an Independent holding on to seats in Islington and North Devon.
