LABOUR cruised to victory in the Kentish Town by-election last night winning a massive 53 per cent of the votes.
The party’s candidate Jenny Headlam-Wells will now represent the people of Kentish Town together with current Labour councillors Meric Apak and Georgia Gould.
She stormed to victory with 1,411 votes, beating Nick Russell from the Liberal Democrats, Will Blair from the Conservatives and Naomi Aptowitzer from the Greens.
Cllr Headlam-Wells said: “I am really excited and very honoured to have been selected by the people of Kentish Town to represent them with such a large majority.
“I am really looking forward to being a councillor and representing the area even though it is a difficult time with lots of spending cuts.”
