RESULTS for the Sedgefield District Council election- Tony Blair’s home ward of New Trimdon and Trimdon Grange in County Durham.

Lucy Howels (Labour) 441 votes
Amanda Foster (BNP) 75 votes

Bowes couldn’t even vote for herself because she lives outside the ward she was standing for.

“I knew I wasn’t going to win but I hoped I might pick up at least one vote,” says he.
