Lib Dems take seat unopposed
The Liberal Democrats have won a council seat unopposed.
A by-election was due to be held for Burbage Parish Council's Sketchley ward seat following the death of Conservative John Howard in August.
However, the Tories did not nominate a candidate by the deadline of Friday.
Lib Dem Steve Deeming was therefore elected.
Stuart Bray, Lib Dem leader of Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council and a county councillor for Burbage, said: "Not many years ago every seat on Burbage Parish Council was Conservative.
"Now the Lib Dems have 14 seats and the Conservatives six."
