This by-election was held in an area of Conservative strength. In this election the conservatives saw an increase in their vote in a pattern that appears across the country. Labour also saw a fall in their vote, again in a pattern seen elsewhere. UKIP took second place as they did in a mirror image of a similar by-election in the North East.
