UKIP scoop Fenside seat on Boston Borough Council
Tiggs Keywood-Wainwright was elected the new Boston Borough councillor for Fenside last night.
The UK Independence Party member secured 162 votes from 411 cast in the by-election.
Daniel Elkington (Conservative) and Alan Taylor (Lib Dem) were tied for second with 87 votes apiece.
Labour's Ben Cook finished fourth with 75 votes.
The turnout was 13.6 per cent.
Ms Keywood-Wainwright said: "I am very happy to have won.
"There are a lot of good people in Boston Fenside. This win is for the community."
The by-election was called after former councillor Elliott Fountain (English Democrat) was booted off the authority for not attending a meeting in six months.
Boston Borough Council is a Conservative-led authority.
