On a rainy November day, Littlebrook returned Daisy Page as its new councillor, while Mark Maddison increased the Labour share of the vote in Brent.
That being said, there was little enthusiasm for an election from the public, with low turnouts in both wards. And UKIP fared worse than they expected.
Lab 358 47.7%
UKIP 220 29.3%
Cons 172 22.9%
Cons 579 44.6%
Lab 402 30.9%
UKIP 316 24.3%
Geoff Prout, Labour group leader, commented:
"Congratulations to Daisy on her election as Labour's new councillor. Commiserations to Mark who fought a great campaign and who will surely win a seat next May.
"Thanks to all voters whotruned out, and to Labour's campaign team for all the hard work undertaken over the last few weeks. "
