LibDems Come Seventh in South Shields

Your key numbers this morning:

  • Labour held South Shields with their majority reduced by 42%, UKIP came second on 24%.
  • By contrast the LibDems came seventh on 1%, lost their deposit, and managed to convince only 352 people to vote for them.
  • UKIP won on average around 26% of the vote where they stood.
  • They cost the Tories control of two councils in Gloucestershire and Lincolnshire.

A bad night for Dave, Ed and Nick, but one leader is all smiles…
