Result: No overall control in North East Lincolnshire

Political deadlock remains in North East Lincolnshire following a dramatic night at the electoral count.

Labour is the largest party by just a single seat following yesterday's local elections. However, in the key seat of Immingham, Labour pipped Conservatives by just three votes.

An initial count was followed by two recounts. After the first count, the two candidates were separated by just one vote. On the second count, it was 13 and the final count brought the margin down to just three votes.

Meanwhile, UKIP lost three seats on a night when a third of the council, 16 seats, were being contested.

Overall, two gains for Labour mean the party is just one seat (and three votes) ahead of Conservatives in second.

  • Labour - 19
  • Conservatives - 18
  • Liberal Democrats - 4
  • Independent - 1
