Cllr Eagling said: “We had such a big majority, it just shows you what you put into anything you gain, gain, gain. I am delighted for all the residents of Harold Wood.”

Mr Donald said he was “chuffed that all three” had got in and Mr Wise added that it was an “excellent result.”

The turnout in the ward was 45.7 per cent.
