The BNP managed to come second in North Ormesby, behind Labour in a ward that we have never contested before. The BNP managed to get almost 20% of the vote. If this was repeated across the North East in the Euro elections then the BNP could take a seat in the European Parliament.
The final results were:
Len JUNIER (Labour) 549
Michael TRAINOR (British National Party) 175
David CROSBY (Conservative) 131
John HEATH (Liberal Democrats) 63
