Paul Darrington, the Conservative candidate, has won the White Oak ward by-election.
Conservative – 319
Labour – 307
Liberal Democrat – 230
The turn out was lower than in the last by-election in October, but Labour came second and increased its share of the vote.
Thanks to all of you who voted and those who worked very hard in this campaign.
We should be proud of this result…. although disappointed that we did not win. Labour will continue to campaign for the people of Swanley and strive to defend residents against Tory cuts backs.
