LABOUR tightened their grip on Oxford City Council last night after a landslide victory in the Barton and Sandhills by-election.
Mike Rowley won the seat, previously held by the Liberal Democrats, with a majority of 503.
Labour now has 26 seats on the council, an overall majority of four.
The by-election was sparked by the resignation of Patrick Murray due to work commitments.
