Interesting council by-election result

Torbay (Unitary Authority), St Mary's with Summercombe
LD Andrew Baldrey 801 (52.7%;+16.4)
Con 365 (24.0%;-23.9)
Lab 195 (12.8%;+12.8)
UKIP 159 (10.5%;+10.5)
[BNP 0 (0.0%;-15.8)]
Majority 436
Turnout 26.2%
LD gain from Con
Percentage change is since May 2007

This is within the constituency of Liberal Democrat MP Adrian Sanders. The Conservative group leader's excuse for losing a Torbay Council seat to the Lib Dems on a 20% swing: it was the fault of the coalition Government rather than local politics!
