Liberal Democrat Brian Toye has been elected as the newest member of Exmouth Town Council.
Mr Toye won yesterday’s by-election in Withycombe Raleigh, held after the death of Lib Dem councillor Jean Mitchell, with 489 votes, ahead of Conservative Fred Caygill with 295 votes.
There was a 15.2 per cent turnout.
The result means there are again 11 Lib Dems on the council, with 13 Conservatives and one Independent.
Mr Toye was previously a member of East Devon District Council for 16 years, and served on the town council between 1996 and 2007.
