A Labour candidate has been elected to a seat on Corby Borough Council which was formerly held by councillor Pat Fawcett, who died in April.

Sean Kettle had a majority of more than 800 votes to take the seat in the Corby East ward in a by-election on Thursday.

He will serve with Labour councillors Lucy Goult and Mark Pengelly on the ward.

Mrs Fawcett stood down from the Labour-controlled authority in December, after being diagnosed with cancer.
