The Independent Bypass Group has sensationally taken control of Boston Borough Council, with Labour being wiped out.

The bypass group secured 25 seats with the Conservatives taking five and independents two.

Council leader Mary Wright, a Conservative, was one of the casualties while Labour lost their 11 seats.

Richard Austin, leader of the newly elected group, said the victory came as no surprise.

"We knew that the mood of the people of Boston was very black and they really do want something to happen to Boston that isn't happening at the moment.

"It's only a reflection of this black mood of the people of Boston."
