The below are the results for the borough council election in Cheltenham.

The leading Liberal Democrat group has extended its control of the council, ousting Conservative group leader Stuart Hutton, but Cheltenham Town chairman Paul Baker has failed in his bid to be re-elected in Charlton Park.

Just one vote separated Lib Dem big-hitter Andrew McKinlay from sitting Tory David Hall in Up Hatherley - and it was the Liberal who clinched the seat.

    Losing by 1 vote is just so unfair, especially after 4 recounts, but David Hall (Up Hatherley Ward) was quite laid back by the situation when I spoke to him later that day. He said he would have more time to persue his own interests, but would still carry on as a Parish Councillor for Up Hatherley, a position he has held for nearly 30 years.

    Even now that the results are actually on here, the format is hopeless. Would it be too much to ask for the totals to be in there?? The Chelt borough website is much better.

    Agreed, Pingu. The manner of the count in Cheltenham has been very poor, and so too it seems is the reporting.....

    erm ... these aren't results, they are just a list of candidates and wards listed alphabetically. Change the headline please.
