Sidney Imafidon made it a debut election campaign to remember after he claimed victory in the Wisbech Town Council by-elections today (Friday). 

Mr Imafidon continued the Conservatives' dominance in the local elections by claiming the Octavia Hill ward seat. 

The first-time Tory candidate secured 570 votes, ahead of independents Peter Freeman and Yvonne Howard who won 458 and 106 votes respectively. 

Speaking after the results were confirmed, a jubilant Mr Imafidon said: "It's my first time standing and I'm really pleased with the result. 

"I could not have done it without my team, and I think it's time to have a nice vegan ham sandwich to celebrate."
