The Green Party saw two more of its candidates elected to local councils today, in Brighton and Devon.

Whilst the political media's attention was on the 12-party fight for Norwich North, Brighton council saw the Tories lose their majority as yet another Green councillor was elected in a by-election.

Greens are now the joint-second party on the council there, on a par with Labour. This bodes really well for the General Election, where Greens are working for victory in the Brighton Pavilion constituency.
