Labour held three council seats last night as the Tories gained one Midlands ward in the latest round of by-elections.
Jeremy Corbyn’s party retained seats in Charnwood in north Leicestershire and Tameside in Greater Manchester.
The Tories gained a ward in Herefordshire where a local county party saw their vote share plunge.
Meanwhile UKIP’s fortunes continued to decline as in every seat up for grabs they either saw a fall in their vote or did not even bother to field a candidate.
