Full result:

Lab 881 (66.1%)
EFP 293 (22.0%)
Con 158 (11.9%)

Previous EFP results in this ward were 15.5% in 2011 and 12.5% in 2010.

On what is already looking a bad night for nationalists across the country, this is a very encouraging result for Mark Cotterill and the England First Party.

Many thanks to everyone who supported Mark’s campaign.  So far it looks as though this is the best result for any English nationalist in this year’s elections, aside from the English Democrat slate in Doncaster where the EDs control the mayoralty, the usual ED stronghold of Rochford, and the defending councillor Seamus Dunne.

In Doncaster there are still no ED councillors, but four of their candidates this year polled over 25%.
