Our best local election results in years!
With control of four more councils and 75 more councillors nationwide Thursday’s council elections saw the best results for the Liberal Democrats in many years. Thankyou to all the voters who gave us their support, and the teams of local Lib Dem campaigners right across the country.
Here in the North West we saw gains in Liverpool, Manchester, Rochdale and Bolton.
We also retained control of the one Lib Dem council in the North West – South Lakeland – taking 29 of the 51 seats in an “all up” election on new boundaries.
