Sam Hoy remains a county councillor having won a return in a by election and consolidated it with a massive majority in Wisbech East.

She said: “I’m elated; it felt very good on the doorstep while I was campaigning but you can never be too confident.

“Half my electorate were previous voters, the other half were new, who felt slightly neglected”.

She said: “Pressing issues were keeping Wisbech rail on track, the minor injuries units open, and people really want Wisbech to improve.

“And I think the town is improving. We are not a divided town anymore, and it’s getting better and will continue to get better.”
