Long-serving councillors lose their seats at Lyme

Lyme Regis Town Council election results.

THREE long-serving councillors failed to gain re-election to Lyme Regis Town Council.

Ken Whetlor and brother’s Stanley and Peter Williams lost their seats in last week’s local election.

Independent candidate Lucy Campbell received the majority of support gaining 827 votes followed by Michaela Ellis with 806.

Others elected to serve on the town council (according to the latest results sheet provided by West Dorset District Council) include Barbara Austin, 705, Ann Bradbury, 490, Christopher Clipson, 487, Mark Gage, 554, Sally Holman, 699, R Austin, 682, Hazel Jenkin, 722, Owen Lovell, 689, Terrence O’Grady, 652, George Symonds, 737, Daryl Turner, 796, and Anita Williams, 523.

Due to the unacceptable state of the district council’s initial results sheet, we have been unable to publish the results any sooner.
