For those who cast their votes in the area south of the Old Kent Road
that now confusingly gets known as East Walworth.
Jane Salmon was elected last night (12 February) as a councillor for East Walworth ward.
The full results were:
Julie Dawn Crawford (Independent?) : 11 votes.
Ruth Jenkins, Green Party candidate: 82 votes
Philip Geoffrey Hurry Riches, Conservative Party candidate: 86 votes
Jane Salmon, Liberal Democrat Focus Team candidate: 1477 votes
Rhodri Thomas, The Labour Party candidate: 978 votes.
The turnout was 32.4 per cent
Edited to add: That turnout figure is actually surpringly high for a council by-election - it would be interesting to know whether the controversy on the future of the Heygate estate brought people out.
