While Conservative councillor Phil Chadwick saw his share of the vote increase in Hyde Werneth - an indication that local issues were more important than the national picture.
In his victory speech, he graciously thanked Labour candidate John Mercer ‘for a clean campaign’.
“I’d like to thank the residents of Hyde Werneth for seeing a candidate and councillor who has worked hard in the area for four years."
