Dreadful day for Labour and Ed Miliband in #Tamworth as Conservatives keep control, poll more voters overall and remove their deputy leader

Conservative councillors in Tamworth have claimed on Twitter that Labour Leader Ed Miliband has cancelled a 'victory visit' to the town, after his party failed to gain the four seats it needed to take control of the Borough Council.

The Conservative administration narrowly held onto power in Tamworth but just one seat, which if it lost would have put the council into No Overall Control.
