UKIP Lincolnshire MEP Derek Clark has reacted with delight at the gains made in the county in the council elections.
[EUPRwire, Fri May 03 2013] Lincolnshire UKIP MEP Derek Clark hailed the election results for UKIP in Lincolnshire.
He said: "These are magnificent results for UKIP in Lincolnshire with the party taking no less than 16 seats in the City of Lincoln.
"We look forward to their work on the county council and to their injection of common sense.
"In Boston UKIP took five of the seven seats with the Ransome family in three of them! It might have been six seats but Don Ransome had to take second place in Boston South where the Tories intervened and split the vote.
"Their 310 votes in a two horse race prevented Don's 786 from overtaking the Independent candidate's 889 votes. Of course we congratulate the winning candidate and look forward to his Independent contribution to local affairs."
