    In a photo finish Town Council election, Lib Dem Karyn Perlejewski-Shah fell just 18 votes short of winning.

    "Naturally I am disappointed, but I'd like to give a big "thank you" to everyone who voted for me. We got more votes than last time, the only party to do so.

    I knew it was going to be very close and hoped I might just do it but it was not to be. I really enjoyed meeting so many residents. It is clear how unhappy we are at the cuts to the Market Place parking, the selling off of our outdoor education centre at Braeside and Devizes being let down.

    Wiltshire Liberal Democrats have launched a County wide petition to force a full Council debate and vote on controversial new car parking charges.

    The new charges for Sunday and Bank Holiday parking in Wiltshire Council car parks will be introduced from 19th November in the run up to Christmas.

    The Lib Dems hope to get 5,000 signatures on a petition calling for the charges to be dropped. If successful, that will force a full debate and vote on the charges at the next meeting of Wiltshire Council in the New Year.
