THE UK Independence Party (UKIP) polled the second largest number of votes across the Pontefract, Normanton and Castleford constituency, pushing the Conservatives into third place after just two years of standing in elections in the constituency.
Over 5,000 people voted UKIP across the Wakefield district, this is double the number of votes the Lib Dems gained.
We are delighted with this result, we are now the second party in the constituency and real alternative to the Labour Party.
We will be back in 2014 with more candidates and better campaigns hoping to win our first seats on Wakefield Council.
