Labour wins key seat on council
The Conservative party has lost overall control of Worcester City Council after a Labour by-election victory.

Labour's candidate, Jenny Barnes, took the St Clements Ward seat on a 17.6% swing since May's main polls.

The Conservatives now have 17 seats on the council, Labour 13, Liberal Democrats three and Independents have two seats.

Worcester is considered a key marginal constituency which parties would hope to win in a General Election.
