Westhoughton Liberal Democrats have won two stunning victories in the Daisy Hill and Wingates by-elections.

Rebekah Fairhurst and Bernadette Eckersley-Fallon were elected to Westhoughton Town Council to represent the Daisy Hill and Wingates wards respectively.

Daisy Hill voted 56% for Rebekah and Wingates 53% for Bernadette, some of the biggest victories that the Liberal Democrats have ever seen in the town.

Westhoughton town councillor David Wilkinson said: “I am absolutely thrilled with the result. The people of Westhoughton have spoken well and truly, rejecting Labour outright and opting for our vision of putting Westhoughton first again.”

Bernadette said: “I am shocked. Just a few weeks ago I was your average resident like anyone else and now, here I am, representing the people of Wingates. People like me were fed up with the ways things are and I hope I can offer a strong voice for our area.”

Rebekah added: “Daisy Hill has long been forgotten by Labour, while Westhoughton has been used as a cash cow for Bolton. People want to feel like their representatives are proud of Westhoughton. I want the town to succeed and for it to be able to stand on its own two feet.”
