Near miss for Lib Dems in Wales by-election

Liberal Democrats narrowly missed a shock gain in the latest council by-elections.

They cut Plaid Cymru's majority to just 13 votes in a contest for Bangor's Glyder seat at Gwynedd County, north west Wales.

In the only other poll this week, Tories coasted home at Remenham, Wargrave and Ruscombe, Wokingham Borough.


Gwynedd County - Glyder: Plaid Cymru 207, Lib Dem 194, C 65, Lab 60. (May 2008 - Plaid Cymru 357, Lib Dem 197). Plaid Cymru hold. Swing 13.1% Plaid Cymru to Lib Dem.

Wokingham District - Remenham, Wargrave and Ruscombe: C 850, Lib Dem 272, Lab 94, Ukip 55, Green 19. (May 2010 - C 2107, Lib Dem 909, Lab 211). C hold. Swing 3.8% Lib Dem to C.
