Lorna Jane Russell elected in Highgate

Lorna Jane Russell successfully defended the Green seat in Highgate in the by-election on 30 November by winning 59% of the vote. This was a significant improvement on the 51% won by the previous Green councillor, Sian Berry, in the 2022 local elections.

With 46 of the 55 Camden seats held by Labour already, Lorna said : “Residents saw the value in having opposition councillors to scrutinise the council and hold the administration accountable.”

Lorna added that locally residents were furious about issues like the “poor quality of council housing, rat-running on local roads, and the fact that Camden does not listen to the Highgate community”.
