The SNP has held a South Ayrshire Council ward following a by-election which was called after the previous incumbent was elected as an MP.

The SNP's John Wallace won the Ayr East ward after the vote on Thursday.

Turnout for the by-election was 34.4%, with 4,006 votes cast out of an electorate of 11,638.

The by-election was called following the resignation of Corri Wilson, who was elected as SNP MP for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock earlier this year.
