ELECTION night in Oxfordshire has kicked off with three significant results.
Independent Mick Haines, a longtime community campaigner, has won Marston off Labour in the Oxford City Council elections.
Mr Haines won 877 votes, beating Louise Upton, who polled 636 votes.
It had been a good week for Ian Hudspeth, who last Thursday was voted in as leader of the ruling Conservative party on Oxfordshire County Council.
He will replace Keith Mitchell later this month.
But tonight he has lost his West Oxfordshire District Council seat to Liberal Democrat Elizabeth Poskitt.
And there was further bad news for the West Oxfordshire Tories as Labour's Duncan Enright took Witney East.
