The Conservative party has claimed another seat on Moray Council with victory in a by-election.
Laura Powell has been elected to serve the Keith and Cullen area following the resignation of former independent member Ron Shepherd.
The result means there are now nine Conservative members in the chambers, with one sitting outside the group – the same amount as the SNP administration.
Laura Powell, Conservative – 1,339
Jock McKay, SNP – 1,184
Rob Barsby, independent – 430
Ian Aitchison, Liberal Democrat – 212
