UKIP scores by-election win in Miliband's backyard


UKIP has picked up another seat on Doncaster Council after a stunning by-election win last night with over 40% of the vote.

Paul Bissettt won the seat, winning it from Labour with the Conservatives trailing in a distant third.

UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall said: "This is yet another sign of how UKIP is now the real opposition to Labour in many of their former heartlands. It is UKIP which is talking about the things people care about: controlling our borders, getting out of the EU and putting our own people first.

"The message is clear to Ed Miliband and the Labour Party: we are taking the fight to you in your backyard.

"The country will be able to hear much more from UKIP at our biggest ever Conference which will take place at Doncaster Racecourse on September 26th - 27th."
