July 4, 2022 5:30 PM

Coventry Liberal Democrats today said a record by-election win in Tiverton and Honiton shows the party can win anywhere and is ready to stand up for communities right across the UK.

This week Liberal Democrat candidate Richard Foord overturned a Conservative majority of over 24,000 - the biggest ever majority overturned in a by-election.

The win at Tiverton and Honiton followed stunning by-election victories over the past 12 months in North Shropshire, and Cheshire and Amersham.

Commenting, Chair Anna Richmond said:

"This record by-election win is testament to the fact that Liberal Democrats are ready to work for communities right across the UK. It's a clear rejection of a Conservative party which partied during lockdown and now is failing to get a grip on inflation that is hammering families in Coventry.

"The message to voters across the country is clear. It doesn't matter what happened at previous polls, a Lib Dem vote can help deliver the kind of leadership that Coventry and the rest of the UK needs."
