THREE Liberal Democrats won the Haverstock ward by-election last night, beating Labour into a close second.
Councillors Jill Fraser and Matt Sanders held onto their seats and new councillor Rahel Bokth took the third seat for the Lib Dems.
It brings their numbers on the council to 13, making the party the official opposition to the majority Labour party.
