A detailed breakdown of the election results in Lincolnshire. The Tories lost overall control and UKIP made big gains.
- Conservatives – 30 seats
- Labour – 10 seats
- Liberal Democrats – 13 seats
- UKIP – 2 seats
Conservative Councillor Philip Atkins thanks voters following confirmation they have retained control of Staffordshire County Council.
David Cameron said UKIP's surge in the local elections was a "major lesson" for the main political parties.
When asked whether he regretted labelling UKIP members "fruitcakes", the Prime Minister said it was "no good insulting any political party."
The outcome is on a knife-edge in Nottinghamshire. If Labour can win all eight seats in Arnold and Carlton, they will take the council.
Following UKIP's strong showing in the local elections, Conservative leader David Cameron said: "We need to show respect for people who have taken the choice to support this party and we are going to work really hard to win them back."
- Conservatives – 34 seats
- Labour – 24 seats
- Liberal Democrats – 0 seats
- UKIP – 2 seats
- Other – 2 seats
The Conservatives, despite losing six seats, have retained overall control of Shropshire Council.
- Conservatives – 48 seats
- Liberal Democrats – 12 seats
- Labour Party – 9 seats
- Independent – 5 seats
UKIP has won its first seat in Staffordshire taking Keele, Knitton and Silverdale.
It was extremely tight, they beat Labour by just two votes.
The final results in Staffordshire are not back yet but it is not looking promising in terms of Labour gaining control of the Conservative controlled council.
The Conservatives currently have 29 seats to Labour's 21. To take an overall majority, the Conservatives need to reach 32.
It has been an uplifting picture for Labour so far in Staffordshire, compared to the 2009 results when they were almost completely wiped out. Up until then, Labour had controlled the Council for 28 years.
