UKIP Set For By Election Win

William Hill make Douglas Carswell 2/7 favourite to win the Clacton by-election for UKIP. Hills also offer 5/2 Conservatives; 33/1 Labour; 100/1 Lib Dems.

'By elections have been notoriously tricky for governing Parties to win, and could be doubly so here with Carswell likely to retain significant numbers of those who voted for him when he was a Conservative' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
