Local election results 2018: The results in maps



Image result for Local Elections 2018


With over 100 councils declaring an election result Labour has failed to take target councils in London, while the Conservatives lost control of Trafford but have gains elsewhere.




UKIP lost over 100 councillors while the Lib Dems have taken Richmond-upon-Thames council. The Greens have a net increase of four councillors.


Those councils changing hands are listed below.

Although they were not defending any councils, UKIP has lost seats in almost all of the councils it defended.

Their biggest loss was in Basildon, where they lost 10 of their 15 seats, resulting in the Conservatives taking control of the council.

Labour
Labour have held on to 46 councils, and gained control of Plymouth from the Conservatives.

However, in the north they lost overall control of Nuneaton and Bedworth, and Derby, while also losing some seats in strongholds like Wigan and Sheffield.

In London, Labour gained multiple seats in Wandsworth and Westminster, as the map below shows - but these gains were not enough to take control of each borough.

Conservatives
The Conservatives gained control of Basildon and Peterborough councils thanks to the collapse in UKIP support, and won some seats in Wakefield and Leeds, traditional Labour areas.

In London, the Tories gained seats in Hillingdon - which some had touted as a potential Labour target - and won nine more seats in Sutton, despite the area remaining in Lib Dem control.

However, they lost control of Trafford, Plymouth and Richmond - where they lost 28 seats in total.

Lib Dems
The Liberal Democrats won control of Richmond-upon-Thames, gaining 24 seats in the process in one of the biggest swings of the night.

They also had strong showings in the Labour areas of Hull and Merton, and the Tory council of Gosport.
