By-Election Preview (22nd September)

There is only one by-election taking place this week and it is for the Fenland District Council, Cambridgeshire. They vacancy arose after the tragic death of the Conservative Councillor Roger Green in a car crash.

Green had easily held his seat in May having been elected unopposed in 2007 so the Tories shouldn't have much trouble holding this. Labour and UKIP stood against Green in May and this by-election has attracted a Liberal Democrat and Independent candidate as well.

Even if any of them produce a surprise win the Conservatives will still have a huge majority in Fenland with the next full Council elections due to take place in 2015.
