Tough times for Nick Clegg's party in Nottingham, where their candidate was beaten by a representative of the Bus Pass Elvis party in a council by-election.
Labour managed to narrowly win the by-election in the suburban ward, which was called after the party's councillor was removed after failing to attend any meeting for six months.
But the stand-out performance was by David Bishop, aka "Lord Biro" of the Bus Pass Elvis party, who beat the Lib Dems by 11 votes.
67 people voted for his Bus Pass Elvis manifesto. Key points included:
Legalise brothels with a 30% reduction for OAPs.
Our candidate would like to see an enquiry into British Vets Fees, the highest in Europe.
Bring back the Dog License to curb irresponsible dog owners.
Save Public lavatories from extinction.
The Lib Dems got just 56 votes in the ward, which is close to a campus of Nottingham Trent University.
