Congratulations to Allison Bradnock and the South Smallburgh team in Norfolk, who held their county division last night – taking more than 50% of the vote.
Allison becomes the 29th Liberal Democrat to be elected to a council since the general election.
We’re still awaiting word from Surrey (they are counting this morning), more news when we get it.
Well done Norfolk, and the best of luck to every Lib Dem campaign team out in the field.
