Labour wins Oldham West and Royton poll
4 December 2015
From the section UK Politics
Labour candidate Jim McMahon has won the Oldham West and Royton by-election with a majority of more than 10,000.
UKIP’s John Bickley came second, followed by the Conservatives’ James Daly.
The by-election, the first of this Parliament, was triggered by the death of long-serving Labour MP Michael Meacher.
Mr McMahon hailed the “staggering” result and said he had “delivered a result that Michael would be proud of”.
