Tanbridge: Felbridge is a postponed poll following the death of the Labour candidate for a Conservative held seat being contested on 06 May.
Its actually a postponed by-election, I think. The contest on 6th May would have been to fill a vacancy caused by the incumbent's death and the term was 2019-2023 so would not otherwise have been contested this year. As such, I think its the longest current unfilled vacancy in the country.

Andrew Mackinlay, yes.
In addition to him there's one more current councillor who had service before 1986 - Steve Penneck of Sutton was first elected in a March 1983 byelection and served until 1994, then taking a 20 year break before returning to the council.
Elengorn, Penneck and Rea are the last to be elected as Liberals before the merger. The last to serve as an SDP councillor left office some years ago.
12th August: North Ayrshire; Dalry & west Kilbride
To be called: Ealing; Hobbayne East Devon; Honiton St Michaels Harlow; Mark Hall Leicester; Humberstone & Hamilton Newark & Sherwood; Bridge (double vacancy) North Tyneside; Camperdown Renfrewshire; Paisley South East Ribble Valley; Alston & Hothersall Sandwell; Tividale Torfaen; Bleanavon West Lothian; East Livingstone & East Calder
Strictly speaking the Sewell elections in Norwich on 17th June are not By elections - but Deferred elections that had been due on 6th May. I live in the ward and have received quite a few leaflets from Labour and the Greens.
