He bagged 444 votes, beating the Liberal Democrat and Green party candidates for the area.

Lib Dem candidate Stuart Bridges got 370 votes and Phyl Stuart Meyer from the Green party received 322.

Ferrigan carried out the campaign dressed as a penguin, promising to go to every full council meeting in the costume.
