    Ed Miliband has claimed that Middle England was turning its back on David Cameron after Labour won the Corby by-election on a 12.7% swing.Andy Sawford's victory by a margin of almost 7,800 votes was the highpoint for Labour in a day of results which was otherwise dominated by the poor turnout in elections to the newly-created post of Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) across England and Wales.Conservatives sought to portray their first loss of a Westminster seat to Labour in a by-election for 15 years as a case of "mid-term blues", and cast some of the blame on former MP Louise Mensch for resigning to be with her family in the United States.
