CONSERVATIVE Stefan Oliver has returned to Suffolk County Council after his party narrowly held on to the Bury Tower division in a by-election.

Mr Oliver was councillor for the neighbouring Hardwick division until he was beaten by LibDem Craig Dearden-Phillips last year.

He has now returned to Endeavour House after winning the seat that became vacant following the resignation of fellow Tory Paul Farmer.

He was pushed all the way by Independent candidate David Nettleton with Labour, the Greens, and the Liberal Democrats further behind.

Stefan Oliver Conservative 1005

David Nettleton Independent 950

Kevin Hind Labour 759

Pippa Judd Green 479

David Chappell Liberal Democrat 300

Majority 55

Turnout 3505
