In Essex, there are results still to come in but the Conservatives have retained control of Castle Point and Brentwood in the local council elections.
Labour kept Harlow.
Southend, Basildon and Colchester are No Overall Control, as is Thurrock where UKIP made big gains at the expense of Labour.
The results form Rochford and Epping, along with the result of the Police and Crime Commissioner, are due later.
In Southend, the Conservatives are the biggest single party with 24 seats – up 2 – but the council is still No Overall Control.
In Basildon, UKIP gained 3 seats, 2 from Labour and 1 from Liberal Democrats.
The Conservatives retained control of Castle Point Council. The Canvey Independent Party gained two seats but the Tories have 22 of the 41 seats.
In Colchester, the Conservatives are the largest party with 22 out of the 51 seats so again there’s no one group in overall control. The Lib Dems won 15, Labour 11 and Independents 3.
In Harlow there’s no change with Labour winning 19, Conservatives 12 and UKIP 2.
In Thurrock, UKIP made big gains and now have the same number of seats as the Conservatives – 17. The Tories only matched their tally by winning the last seat to be declared by one vote – and after several recounts.
Labour were the big losers there, down to 14 councillors, and there’s one Independent.
The Conservatives retained control in Brentwood and gained one seat – Shenfield – where Liberal Democrat councillor Graeme Clark decided not to stand.
