Results are now in for all five local by-elections held on 7 August 2014. The Conservatives and Greens held all the seats they were each defending, while the Liberal Democrats lost their seat in Worthing, Castle to UKIP.
Overall, it was a good week for UKIP, with strong second places in Epping Forest and Huntingdonshire as well as their gain in Worthing. The Conservatives and Greens will be happy holding their seats, but it's been a very disappointing set of results for the Liberal Democrats - not only losing their Worthing seat but also polling a rather miserable seven votes in Epping Forest.
