Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph at King George’s Hall following his win he said: “I am honestly speechless for once. “This win is for the community. They want change I always felt it.

“In the past three years we have put a lot of work in the local neighbourhood and I think people have responded to that.

“I felt we had a chance. Next I just want to get to work.

"Also I think the prayers and blessing from people during Ramadan helped."

Conservative Leader, John Slater said: “He ran a brilliant campaign and we are absolutely delighted.”

“We have broken through the ceiling and people have realised they are fed up with the Labour. People are waking up.”

Tiger added: “I would like to thank the community and also my dedicated cameraman Abu Bakar Lorgat.”

Abu Bakar said: “It was wonderful working with him. I loved every minute of it.”
