Labour won a seat from UKIP and held two other seats with increased vote share in the latest round of council by-elections.

In the eleven contests held yesterday, Labour made a gain in Basildon’s Pitsea South East ward, Essex. Traditionally a Tory-Labour marginal, it became a three-way marginal following the rise of UKIP in 2012, according to Andrew Teale of Britain Elects. Last night Labour’s Andrew Ansell won a tight race with 46.1 per cent of the vote against the Tory candidate’s 45.6 per cent.

Elsewhere in Basildon, law trainee Kayode Adeniran successfully defended Lee Chapel North ward for Labour, increasing vote share by 20 per cent. He was congratulated on Twitter by Wes Streeting MP and Unite’s Shelly Asquith.
