Labour gain eight Barrow Borough Council seats

LABOUR have secured a sensational victory in the Barrow Borough Council elections.

The party gained eight seats at the expense of the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and independant councillors.

Labour councillors Barry Doughty, Wendy Maddox and Colin Thomson secured seats on Dalton North, Dalton South and Walney South.

Hindpool and Central also became Labour seats with Margaret Thomson and Trevor Biggins sweeping into Barrow Town Hall.

And Brendan Sweeney, Bob Pointer and John Murphy completed a memorable day for Labour when they won Parkside, Ormsgill and Newbarns.

Conservative councillors Rory McClure, Jack Richardson and Labour's Tony Callister defended their seats in Roosecote, Hawcoat and Walney North respectively.

Today's election results mean Labour have increased the number of councillors from eight to 16.

Have your say

What excuse will the Labour councillors use when in 5 years the town is exactly where it is now

Of course it is OK to be jubilant that Labour have gained eight seats and Woodcock is our representative in Parliament.

He now has work to do to maintain his promises to the Barrow people.
