A by-election for the Tavistock North ward of West Devon Borough Council was a dead heat but Cllr Ursula Mann has won through after drawing lots!

Independent candidate Ursula Mann and Liberal Democrat candidate Holly Greenbury-Pullen got the exact same number of votes, so lots were drawn and, as a consequence, an additional vote was allotted to Ursula Mann, who is duly elected.

The results were as follows:

Holly Greenbury-Pullen (Lib Dem) 233 votes

Judy Hughes (Con) 176 votes

Ursula Mann (Ind) 233 (elected)

Annabel Martn (Green) 215

Uwem Udo (Lab) 57
