Big win for Liberal Democrat Ann Holtom in Tyburn - Tories in third place

Thank you

The result of the 1 May council election in Tyburn Ward was a triumph for local Liberal Democrat councillor Ann Holtom. Ann was re-elected with a majority of more than 500 votes over Labour candidate Des Hughes in second place. The Tory, Derek Johnson, came third - despite extravagant claims during the campaign that only the Conservatives could beat Labour and that Ann was out of the race.

The full result was:

Tamar Bolger (Green) - 121

Ann Holtom (Lib Dem) - 1652

Des Hughes (Labour) - 1144

Derek Johnson (Conservative) - 1125

Ben Lumby (BNP) - 395

Sally Ann Rose (Independent) - 129

Majority - 508

Throughout this campaign Ann Holtom has consistently said that only the Liberal Democrats could beat Labour in Tyburn Ward. This has been confirmed by the result.

A big thank you to all Tyburn residents who voted for Ann. Cllr Holtom pledges to continue to be a strong voice for Tyburn Ward on the City Council and on behalf of all the residents of the ward.
