Respect ousts Bradford Labour boss

George Galloway's Respect Party has followed up its shock by-election victory by winning five seats on Bradford Council, including that of the Labour leader.

Councillor Ian Greenwood lost his Little Horton seat after three recounts to Respect's Alyas Karmani.

Mr Galloway, who upset Labour by winning the Bradford West parliamentary seat in a March by-election, was absent for the count, which saw his party successful in five out of the 12 wards it contested.
