Westminster local elections

Last week Labour took over Westminster Council in its first victory here since the local authority was created.

In an extraordinary result, the Conservatives saw a net loss of 18 seats, while 13 turned red.

Despite the dramatic recolouring of the ward map, the Tories’ overall vote share was down only by 0.8%, while Labour’s rose by 5% to 47.9%.

Meanwhile the Liberal Democrats failed to gain a seat, with their best result placing second in Marylebone ward.

Last Thursday’s election took place under new boundaries, with six less seats overall being contested, including three newly created wards.
