A newspaper with the headline

Elaine Willmore has won the by-election in the Nunnery ward of Worcester City Council for the Labour party.

The by-election was called following the death of Councillor Simon Cronin, who won the seat on 4 May this year with a majority of 330.

The full results of the by-election are:

  • Scott Butler (Liberal Democrat) – 102 votes
  • David Carney (independent) – 88 votes
  • Allah Ditta (Conservative) – 518 votes
  • Elaine Willmore (Labour) – 1,048 votes

The turnout was 26.48%

The result means that Worcester City Council now has a full complement of 35 councillors. The political balance of the Council is:

  • Labour - 13
  • Green - 10
  • Conservative - 8
  • Liberal Democrat - 4

Worcester City Council currently holds annual elections, with one third of the Council's 35 councillors facing the polls each year.

In May 2024, Worcester City Council will move to a new system of all-out elections, which means that Cllr Elaine Willmore's term will only last until that date.
