VOTERS in Thornbury delivered another victory for the Liberal Democrats – and pushed the Conservatives into last place, behind the Greens and Labour.
Turnout increased to 40% from 39% in 2019, with almost 4,400 voters taking part on May 4.
Four years ago the seat had been a two-horse race between the Lib Dems and Tories, but this year one Green Party and one Labour candidate stood.
And while the Lib Dems again won at a canter, with third-placed candidate Jayne Stansfield elected by a margin of 1,659 votes, it was the Greens’ Jen Gash who placed fourth, 259 votes ahead of Labour’s Alasdair Weekes.
That left the Tories in the last three places, with leading candidate Olivia Owusu-Antwi 57 votes behind Labour.
