Barnet Labour met expectations with a resounding victory in the postponed Colindale ward election last night - to cut the Conservative majority on the council to just one seat.

All three Labour candidates standing in the ward celebrated emphatic victories in the poll, which was postponed during the borough-wide local elections last month following the unexpected death of a Green Party candidate.

Last night, Labour candidates Nagus Narenthira, Gill Sargeant and Zakia Zubairi were confirmed election victors with over 6,000 votes between them.

The Conservative candidates were the closest runners-up with just over 1,300 votes between them.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) beat the Green Party and Liberal Democrats into third place.

The election leaves the Conservatives clinging onto control of the council with 32 seats overall to Labour’s 30 and one for the Liberal Democrats.

Colindale election results by political party:

Labour: 6,293 (67.9 per cent)

Conservative: 1,387 (14.9 per cent)

UKIP: 924 (9.9 per cent)

Green Party: 352 (3.7 per cent)

Liberal Democrat: 310 (3.3 per cent)

Total: 9,266
