The SNP has held a seat on Fife Council after a by-election.

The vote in the Leven, Kennoway and Largo ward was triggered after Councillor Alistair Hunter resigned to emigrate to Australia.

The SNP held the seat in the fifth round of counting under the single transferrable vote system, with Alistair Suttie winning 1,501 first-preference votes.

Labour finished second, with the Conservatives third. Turnout was 27.6%.
