With 1,086 votes – 657 more than UKIP’s Dick Mandley – Cllr Hay, who has lived in the town for 40 years, said: “I want to thank the general public for voting for me.

“In Chatteris, we seem to be the lost part of Fenland, particularly in terms of transport, the state of our roads and education.

“I know we are getting a new primary school, and education is real issue because I know of a four-year-old having to be taxied to Wimblington because there is not enough space at their school.”
