The Conservatives, as expected, won the Witney by-election in the early hours of the morning but their majority - and share of the vote - were well down on what the area's former MP David Cameron managed in the GENERAL election.
Robert Courts won. He was just under 6,000 votes ahead of the Liberal Democrats, who jumped from 4th place to 2nd, with over 11,500 votes. Labour slipped back to third, and the Greens just beat UKIP.
Our political correspondent Phil Hornby reports on a night of drama.
