Lib Dems storm to victory with 17% lead over Tories

Lib Dems Jeff Brooks and David Lister win the double Thatcham West by-election with the Tories second, Greens third and Labour fourth. 

Lib Dems have gained the Thatcham West District seat on West Berkshire Council after the previous Tory incumbent, Nick Goodes, was disqualified for not attending meetings for more than 6 months. 

It was a double success for the party, as David Lister also took the vacant place on Thatcham Town Council, with 786 votes, compared to second-placed Tory, who received 527 votes.
