Congratulations to Cllr. Denise Jones and Cllr. Abdal Ullah on being elected as the new councillors for St Katharine’s & Wapping ward.
And of course congratulations to local boy John Biggs who won the mayoral race and led his Labour team to a massive victory across the borough.
Commiserations to all the other candidates and their supporters who worked just as hard as the winners but without the ultimate reward of victory.

Local Elections – Thursday, 3rd May, 2018
All the Tower Hamlets ward results can now (finally) be seen here.
LW website finally gets more than two viewers
We think it is only fair to also congratulate the teeny weeny underpowered LW web site which somehow managed to serve up a huge number of page views to those wanting to find out about the latest local election results yesterday.
The election live blog page was viewed more than 24,000 times and so became the most popular page in the entire five year history of LW by a considerable margin. Before yesterday the most popular page had been viewed just over 10,000 times in two years, followed closely by now ex-councillor Oliur Rahman at the bookies of course.
This is probably because LW is now showing up in the Google News search results. Thanks Google!
And last but by no means least a massive thanks to our great friend local photographer and What’s in Wapping publisher Vickie Flores who has provided us with loads of high quality photos throughout the campaign.
More on the elections when we can.
