Green Party - 1 seat - 196,419 votes

Claims of election fraud in Richmond Upon Thames

Claims of election fraud are being investigated by police after fake election pamphlets were reportedly handed out in the name of a candidate.

Leaflets purporting to be from a Liberal Democrat candidate appeared to pledge support for a number of causes, including a controversial planning decision.

They were handed out the day before the Richmond Upon Thames Council by-election in south west London on May 3rd.

A Lib Dem spokesman said candidate Jane Dodds had not backed the manifesto points on the fake flyer.

The hotly contested Richmond North seat was won by Conservative candidate Stephen Speak, who beat Ms Dodds by 146 votes.


Johnson widens election lead

Boris Johnson has increased his lead over Labour challenger Ken Livingstone to four points as the campaign for London mayor enters its final week.

But Mr Livingstone's team insist they are not dispirited by the YouGov survey for the Evening Standard.

The poll gives Conservative Mr Johnson a four point lead of 52%-48% after second preferences are taken into account.

Labour says the race remains "neck and neck" with just three days to go before voters across the capital go to the polls.
