Election results: Bury North

Richard Baum

Richard Baum

Jewish candidate Richard Baum saw some success in increasing the Liberal Democrat vote in Bury North, although in third place he was no competition for the only swing seat to the Tories in Greater Manchester.

Conservative David Nuttall defeated strong opponent Maryam Khan for Labour, daughter of Afzal Khan, a former Manchester mayor and co-chair of the Muslim-Jewish Forum.

Far behind Mr. Baum was the BNP's John Maude with 1,825 votes, although stronger BNP results are expected in the constituency's local elections.
