Nick Xylas, the Wessex Regionalists candidate for Bristol's Eastville ward, upset the odds by polling 62 votes in what was the party's first electoral contest in the ward.
On a day when the local elections coincided with the city's Mayoral election, it was clear many people mainly voted for the same parties for the mayor as they did for the wards. Faced with this, the result for Nick and the Wessex Regionalists was a massive success and bodes well for future electoral contests in Eastville and elsewhere.
