THE Conservatives romped to victory in the Frognal and Fitzjohns by-election last night securing more than 60 per cent of the vote.

The traditionally Tory ward has elected Gio Spinella as its next councillor after he garnered 1,061 votes.

The by-election was called after the tragic unexpected death of Cllr Martin Davies last month, just weeks after he had been chosen to lead the Conservative group on Camden Council.

Mr Spinella said: "I am really pleased and proud of the result. Thank you to the voters of Frognal and Fitzjohns and everyone who has worked on the campaign.

"The real work here is dedicated to Martin Davies because it was his hard work that made this such a great ward over the years."
