  • LABOUR TAKES WALKDEN SOUTH FROM THE CONSERVATIVES WITH A MAJORITY OF 148

    Elections


    Labour candidate Josh Brooks has been duly elected as Councillor for the Walkden South ward in what turned out to be a good night for Salford Labour after a hard fought campaign.

    Which means that the conservatives have lost the seat previously held by Iain Lindley who stepped down from Council earlier this year. This means that the ward now has 3 Labour councillors.

    The election had previously been postponed due to the unfortunate death of the Conservative candidate George Andrew Darlington, who sadly passed away shortly before the May election.

    The results this evening are as follows.
