We had a chat with Leanne Buckingham, Ross Armour and Simon Rielly who pulled off one of the shocks of the night to take all three seats in Oakley

They said that they visited every house in their ward three times and managed to really get to grips with the issues that mattered to people.

They said they believed they could win two of the seats but thought all three would be a tough act.

They’re all really keen to get going and say they’ve started casework in their ward already.
