Smallthorne and Ford Green this morning are waking up this morning with the news that Matt Wilcox has wiped the floor with all of his opponents, with a staggering 400(ish) vote lead, taking just over 50% (600 votes). John Nicholls in second with 209, only managed to take 209 votes.
Future candidates for this ward will do well to remember to take part in at least one reality TV show before election next time around.
MyTunstall user Ian Norris saw his hopes of becoming a councillor dashed as he came in final place with just 62 votes.
