We quote from a Press release from Rotherham Labour Group:
“Councillor Akhtar also expressed his disappointment that Anston and Woodsetts Councillor Darren Hughes narrowly lost his seat saying “Darren had been a great servant to his ward and made an important contribution in the Town Hall. He was on the receiving end of a very bitter and negative campaign which sadly proved successful. I have no doubt that he will continue to play a valuable role in the life of Rotherham.”
The only important contribution we can think of, was champagne!
