With the votes counted, Simon de Deney and the Liberal Democrat team have congratulated Labour candidate Caroline Woodley, who will be Hackney's new mayor.

On a very low turnout of under 21%, Simon polled 1,879 votes, coming in fourth place with 5.1% support.

"Of course, you always hope for more," said Simon, " but this campaign has brought together Lib Dem supporters new and old and from a fantastic and diverse range of backgrounds - And it's all been motivated by a real desire to see Hackney improve and thrive. That's a win in my book."

A local party spokesperson congratulated Mayor-elect Woodley and wished her well as she embarked on a tough job - but also added that the issues in Simon's mayoral campaign have not gone away. Hackney Liberal Democrats will continue to campaign for more social housing, stronger environmental protections and a revitalised local democracy.
