Thirsk and Malton Result

Toby Horton, UKIP's candidate for the Thirsk & Malton constituency, polled 6.6% in yesterday's election to come in in fourth place.

Toby almost doubled the Liberal Party's vote and was just shy of half the Labour Party's vote.

Although I'm sure he's disappointed not to have won, he should at least be reassured by the fact that he broke the 5% barrier to retain his deposit, beat the Liberal Party and achieved over a 100% swing for UKIP.
