Labour candidate David Biddleston has been elected as the new town councillor for Keynsham South.
Turnout in in yesterday's by-election was low, at just 19 per cent.
The by-election was called following the resignation of Conservative councillor Andrew Hickling.
Mr Biddleston won 298 votes, with the Tory candidate Carole-Anne Duckett in second place with 243 votes. The Lib Democrat candidate Andy Halliday was third, polling 213 votes.
There are now eight Conservative councillors on the town council, four Labour members, two Lib Dems and one member representing the British National Party.
