Mr Cereste said: "I'm absolutely over the moon. I moved into a new ward two years ago and only managed to win by 30 votes. I've taken that majority to 230 votes so I'm over the moon and I only have the people of Hampton to thank.

"They've really turned out to support me. They are wonderful people and it's a wonderful place and I'm absolutely delighted to return to be their councillor.

"I've really enjoyed being a ward councillor. I haven't done really great things but I've spent a lot of time helping my constituents with the problems that they have. They are important to them."

Result:

Marco CERESTE (Conservative) - 529

Mohammed MUNIR (Labour and Co-operative) - 292

Nicola MILLS (Liberal Democrat) - 121

Greg GUTHRIE (Green) - 66

Turnout: 22.9%
