Labour loses seat as UKIP prevails
Labour lost one seat as UKIP won its first ever one on Lancashire County County.
Alan Hosker took the Padiham and Burnley West seat with 1,234 votes, 228 more than former Cabinet member Marcus Johnstone.
Liberal Democrats also suffered one loss as Cosima Towneley (Conservative) won the Burnley Rural seat from Margaret Brindle, who was standing this year as an Independent.
Elsewhere, Jeff Sumner (Lib Dem), Terry Burns (Labour), Sobia Malik (Labour), Tony Martin (Labour) all held on to their seats.
County. Coun. Alan Hosker said: "I'm delighted to have been elected by the people of Padiham and Burnley West to represent them on Lancashire County Council. For the past two years, me and my team have been working for local residents on Burnley Council and I would like to think that our hard work has been rewarded by today's result.
"I've lived in Padiham all my life, and I will fight for our community at County Hall with the same vigour that led me to be re-elected last year.
"Thank you to everyone who voted at this election and rest assured, I will represent you all as best as I can."
