A detailed breakdown of the election results in Lincolnshire. The Tories lost overall control and UKIP made big gains.
Labour has celebrated a 'landslide victory' in Birmingham today, ousting the Tory-Lib Dem coalition which has ruled the city since 2004.
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

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.
Graham Partner, who won in Leicestershire as a BNP candidate in 2009, has lost his seat representing Coalville to Labour.
Labour has taken overall control of Derbyshire County Council with 20 gains.
- Conservatives – 18 seats
- Labour – 43 seats
- Liberal Democrats – 3 seats
- UKIP – 0
- Other – 0
A Conservative leader in Lincolnshire has admitted that a local authority coalition with UKIP would be difficult because he knows very little about its new councillors.
UKIP secured 16 of the 77 seats on Lincolnshire County Council, having previously held none following the 2009 election.
The Tories fell three seats short of retaining overall control of the authority after losing 25 divisions to leave them with 36 of the 77 available.
