Results from yesterday’s Herts county council election are in, and Tories have won every division in Harpenden.

This is in stark contrast to St Albans divisions, in which Liberal Democrat candidates have won across the board.

For Harpenden North East, Conservative candidate David Williams has been elected with 2,157 seats.

He beat Labour Linda Spiri, who got 537 votes, UKip’s Lester Mackenzie, who bagged 103 ballots, Green Lydia El-Khouri, who received 172 votes, and Lib Dem Paul De Kort, who was the closest behind with 1,098.

In Harpenden Rural Conservative Annie Brewster smashed the competition with 2,795 votes - over 1,000 more than any of the other candidates against her.

They were Lib Dem Sharon Hollingsworth with 868 votes, Ukip John Midgley with 148 supporters, Labour’s Anthony Neville who got 479 ballots, and Green’s Ian Troughton, who received 190 votes.

A similar story can be seen for Harpenden South West division - Conservative candidate Teresa Heritage, has been re-elected with 2,882 votes.

She beat her rivals easily - 84 votes for Ukip’s Colin Donald, 448 for Labour’s George Fraser, 1,032 votes for Lib Dem Jeffrey Phillips, and 168 votes for Green Tim Robinson.
