– Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister
Seeing friends and colleagues lose their Council seats is not easy. They have all worked extremely hard for the communities they represented over the years.
Losing councillors is hard to take. It is often the price that parties in Government pay in mid-term, as Labour found out a few years ago. However, I am pleased to see that Lib Dems in Sheffield kept the Tories in check.
I know Shaffaq and the rest of the team will continue to be the strong opposition to Labour that Sheffield needs on the Council.
Thousands of people across our region have been casting their votes to elect their local councillors. We'll have the latest results here as they come in from our reporters and correspondents across the region.
