Conservative candidate Brenda Sumner has been re-elected onto Stamford Town Council.

Coun Sumner takes the seat in St John’s Ward after winning 224 votes in yesterday’s by-election (September 24), which was triggered after former mayor Clem Walden resigned.

The full number of votes cast are as follows:

Brenda Sumner (Con) 224

Robert Foulkes (Ukip) 167

Alan Swan (Stamford Group of Independents) 123

Pamela Bisnauthsing (Real Independent) 74

Emma Hunter (Lib Dem) 66

Aiden Campbell (Green) 11

Turnout was 16.9 per cent.

Coun Sumner did not stand for re-election in May but is now back on the council. She is also a South Kesteven district councillor. Her husband Brian, also a town councillor, is a former mayor of Stamford.
