Labour hold both Bush Fair and Netteswell in by-elections

HARLOW Labour successfully defended both wards in by-elections on Thursday night.

Jodi Dunne held Bush Fair and Shannon Jezzard held Netteswell.

Despite most parties working very hard, the turnout was worryingly low.

The Tories narrowed the numerical gap in Bush Fair to 83 from 99 last May but Labour widened their majority in Netteswell to 243.

Both Ukip and the Harlow Alliance Party had ‘still in the game” returns.
