Yet another win for the Conservatives in the Grantham East ward in tonight’s elections.
It is the third result of the night and the third win for the Conservatives.
Each ballot so far has been for Grantham wards and with only one Grantham ward to go it looks like the town will continue to be a Tory stronghold.
