The political map of Burnley has reverted to type with a Labour MP being returned to Parliament.

Former Burnley Council leader Julie Cooper has won the right to champion Burnley’s cause in the corridors of power.

It is certainly an interesting time as the political landscape of the country has seen a major shift in the past few days.

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend is already voicing his fears over the potential impact of a Conservative majority Government on towns such as Burnley.

There is no doubt testing times lie ahead, but Burnley has a history of working together to make the most of a bad job.
