First not second!
Profuse apologies to Bill Revans Leader of the LibDem administration that has just won in Somerset. Earlier today we reported that Cllr Revans had come second in North Petherton and that this was a surprise. This was based on the election feed we received from Somerset County Council that placed Conservative Alan Bradford first.
It was not quite such a big surprise after all. Mainly because it wasn’t true. The actual results were as follows:
- 1,548 Bill Revans (LibDem)
- 1,121 Alan Bradford (Conservative)
- 1,084 Gary Wong (LibDem)
- 801 Anthony Betty (Conservative)
- 194 Jon Falkingham (Labour)
- 183 Genevieve Wark (Labour)
