THE CONSERVATIVE Party enjoyed a resounding victory during the local ward elections this week.

The Tories once again secured all nine seats on East Riding Council in Pocklington Provincial, Wolds Weighton and Howdenshire Wards, despite a spirited challenge from other candidates.

In Pocklington, Councillors Kay West, Claude Mole and Stephen Lane each retained their seats, while at Howdenshire, Paul Robinson, Doreen Engall and Nick Evans enjoyed victory.

Weighton’s count was the final of the three to be announced after midday on Friday, with Dee Sharpe, David Rudd and Andy Burton all retaining their seats.
