Congratulations to Sue Cooper, a former councillor in the area for 20 years and previous by-election fighter, and the Lib Dem team on such a dramatic gain. It doubles the size of the Liberal Democrat group on the council. It also continues the pattern of the Liberal Democrats doing well against the Conservatives in Remain, shire district areas across England - one reason why next year's local elections look so interesting.
