Conservative Theresa Hewett has been elected to represent the Saham Toney ward on Breckland Council, following the resignation of Charles Carter who was filmed making lewd comments to a hunt protestor.
Mr Carter resigned in January.
Video footage emerged of him being confronted by a woman named Linda Hoggard at a hunt in Yorkshire. On the film, Mr Carter took his own phone out to film Mrs Hoggard and told her: 'I'd quite like to **** you, actually', before adding: 'Can I take you to bed, please?'
Smiling, he then added: 'You're very pretty,' before finally asking: 'Can I have your number, please?'
The byelection saw Ms Hewett receive 335 votes.
