Tories see off UKIP threat.

The Conservatives held on to Tunbridge Wells East, but with a much reduced majority and percentage of the vote. An excellent performance in the circumstances.  Poor turnout probably helped the Conservatives who will be delighted that the UKIP juggernaut has been checked.
