Local elections results 2018

Labour now has four councillors on Huntingdonshire District Council, four on Huntingdon Town Council, and one on St Neots Town Council.

Speaking in St Neots, newly-elected councillor Dr Nik Johnson said "I'm delighted that so many people across Huntingdonshire have trusted Labour with their votes. With twice as many councillors at Pathfinder House, we will be able to better hold the ruling Conservatives to account, and we will be better able to represent ordinary people across the District."

"We know from last year how different local elections are from general elections. Labour's message of building a country for the many, not the few, has resonated across the country, and we will be out every day, campaigning and building for a fairer Britain"

The make-up of Huntingdonshire District Council is now Conservative 30, LibDem 7, SNIG 6, Independents 5, and Labour 4.
