People in Melbourn have elected eight councillors into the parish council in the village’s first by-election for more than 30 years.

Yesterday’s vote was triggered after 12 councillors resigned this year and council meetings were subsequently suspended.

An election wasn’t called after the first four councillors resigned, so these seats will now be decided by co-option.

The results were:

Diana Elizabeth Barker 344

Irene Bloomfield 270

Nikki Cross 665 ELECTED

Jose Hales 786 ELECTED

Kerry Harrington 603 ELECTED

Sally Ann Hart 672 ELECTED

Steve Kilmurray 550 ELECTED

Andrew Phillip Mulcock 264

Julie Amanda Norman 629 ELECTED

John Regan 604 ELECTED

Jane Shepherd 493

Sashi Siva 608 ELECTED

The turnout was 28.13 per cent.
