Littleport won the ‘honour’ of achieving the lowest turn-out of any division across East Cambridgeshire for yesterday’s local elections.
With electors going to the polls in all eight divisions for seats on Cambridgeshire County Council, most of Littleport decided to stay at home.
The turnout figure for Littleport, where David Ambrose Smith is defending his Conservative held seat, was just 23.5 per cent.
That contrasts with Ely South division which, at 46.9 per cent, had the highest turnout.
There are four candidates for Ely South – Green, Lib Dem, Lab and Conservative.
