Labour triumphs in Carlisle council elections

Labour has taken control of Carlisle City Council, ending 13 years of Conservative rule.

The party won four seats in Thursday's elections, making gains in Castle and Morton from the Liberal Democrats, and in Belle Vue and Yewdale at the expense of the Conservatives.

Dr Joe Hendry, leader of the Labour group, said: "After 13 years I'm delighted for Carlisle, as well as for the Labour Party, that we are back in power.

Conservative leader Mike Mitchelson described the result as "hugely disappointing".

Labour now has 27 of the 52 council seats, giving it an overall majority for the first time since 1999.

The Conservatives have 20 councillors, the Liberal Democrats two and there are two Independents.

One seat in Harraby remains vacant following the death of veteran Labour councillor Dave Weedall last month. Labour is almost certain to retain it when a by-election is held.

Will the Union Cairn make a difference to the 'No' vote campaign?

Yes, it's an effective way of getting across the fact Scotland and England should stay united

No, people have already made their mind up which way they are going to vote

No. It may backfire because some Scots will say it is the English interfering in their referendum
