Mcr Local Election: A Second Gain to Labour

Longsight has fallen by a massive majority to Labour's Luthfur Rahman. Lib Dem loser Liaquat Ali tried to defect to Labour ahead of the poll. Wait until after the election was the decision on that one ...

Holds for Labour in Brooklands, Charlestown, Moss Side; and for Lib Dems in Burnage, Didsbury West, Gorton North and Withington.

Half way. Big ones to come in Cheetham Hill, Chorlton, Northenden, Miles Platting and Newton Heath, Whalley Range. The first four are Labour defences, the latter a Lib Dem defence. All fourfive have been very strongly contested.
