Liberal Democrats now largest party on Cornwall Council

Last night the Liberal Democrats gained the Wadebridge East ward on Cornwall Council last night. The seat was previously held by the Independent councillor Collin Brewer, whose views on disabled children (quite rightly) gained him national notoriety.

The full result:

Steve Knightley (Lib Dem) 408
Independent 399
Conservative 217
UKIP 202
Labour 58

Following last night's result the strength of the parties on Cornwall Council is as follows:

Liberal Democrat 37
Independent 36
Conservative 30
Labour 8
Mebyon Kernow 4
Others 2

The Wadebridge East ward forms part of the North Cornwall constituency, held for the Liberal Democrats by Dan Rogerson.
