Polling in the Cornwall Council by-election at Falmouth is to be on Thursday 1st February.

The formal notice of poll is due to be published next week.  Nominations close at 4pm on Friday 5th January.

The election is in the Smithick ward of Falmouth, which was previously contested in May.  Labour is defending a majority of 189 over the Conservatives.   On that occasion, the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party was fourth.

The by-election has been caused by the death, in October, of former Labour MP Candy Atherton.
