Labour held on the seat easily and continue what must be a impressive number of defences run . Only I believe loosing two seats in by-elections in Wales since their landslide in 2012 Ian Johnson on the Buttrills Ward on the Vale of Glamorgan. for Plaid in 2012 and former Lib Dem Peter May as Independent in the Uplands ward on Swansea Council last November.
Any more let me know.

It seems that anyone looking at council by-election results for a pointer to any change in Welsh seats in GE2012 may well be disappointed.
