This morning, Tadley Town Councillor Warwick Lovegrove was elected as the new Hampshire County Councillor for Tadley & Baughurst. I would like to congratulate Warwick on his decisive victory over sitting Councillor Marilyn Tucker. I look forward to working with Warwick to tackle the problems of roads and school places and I will support him in his efforts to get better amenities and more funding for Tadley.

In Hampshire, UKIP gained 10 seats confirming that support for the party continues to grow.
Thanks to all of those who supported me. I will of course continue to work hard for Tadley Central on Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council.
Tadley & Baughurst needed a new County Councillor and I wish Warwick all the best in this important new role.
More to follow.
