Cambridgeshire County Council has returned to outright Conservative control after four years as a hung council.

There are 61 councillors on Cambridgeshire County Council.

County Council elections are held every four years and in the last election in 2013, the Conservatives lost their overall majority and the council became hung with no one party in overall control.

That means no one party had enough councillors to out-vote all the other councillors from other parties.

The seven candidates for Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are Paul Bullen, Rod Cantrill and Peter Dawe (top row) with Stephen Goldspink, Julie Howell, James Palmer and Kevin Price (bottom row)

There is also an election in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for an elected mayor with new devolved powers from central government over housing, transport and local investment.

There are no local authority elections in Peterborough

The Conservative have won an overall majority on Cambridgeshire County Council.
