UKIP wins by-election in Dothill

I'd like to congratulate my colleague, Denis Allen, on an excellent by-election win in the Dothill ward of Wellington Town Council last night.

Denis secured 46.25% of the vote yesterday, taking more than double the number of votes of the second-placed Labour candidate.  The Conservatives, who previously held the seat, were in third and one of my fellow Brookside parish councillors, David Holloway, came last for the Lib Dems.

Cllr Allen is the Chairman of UKIP Telford & Wrekin and a former Mayor of Wellington and Deputy Mayor of Telford & Wrekin.
