Newcomer Mark Ladbrooke’s share of the vote held up well considering Van Coulter had a good record as a local councillor and a strong personal following. The absence of UKIP this time round affected¬†the figures. It’s not possible to say with any certainty but on the surface it looks as if the bulk of the UKIP vote in 2016 went to the Conservatives, with the LibDems picking up small percentages from everyone but the Greens.
