The votes were counted last night in the Riverside district and Southcourt district and town council by-elections.

There was no change in the sitting parties following the by-elections in Aylesbury.

The Conservatives retained the Riverside district ward, which covers Quarrendon and Berryfields while the Liberal Democrats retained the Southcourt district and town council wards.

The by-elections were triggered by the resignations of Conservative Nick Lewis and Lib Dem Peter Agoro earlier this year for personal reasons.
