Labour wins Feltham by-election
Winning candidate Seema Malhotra has welcomed a "vote of confidence in the way Labour is changing" after the party held the Feltham and Heston seat, with an 8% swing from the Conservatives.
She said that the "people of Feltham and Heston know the coalition is failing".
The by-election was caused by the death of former Labour MP Alan Keen last month.
Turnout for the by-election was estimated to be 28.8%.
