The Liberal Democrats have retained the Melbourn seat in the Cambs County Council election after the county went to the polls yesterday.
Liberal Democrat Susan van de Ven comfortably held her seat – and Local Government Boundary Commission boundary changes to reduce the number of divisions in Cambs mean that she will now represent Whaddon and Bassingbourn as well as Meldreth and Melbourn.
The villages of Foxton, Shepreth, Heydon and Great and Little Chishill are now joined with Fowlmere, Thriplow, Duxford, Pampisford, Whittlesford, Ickleton and Hinxton to form the new Duxford division and this result is yet to be announced.
