The word 'landslide' is over-used in elections, but that's what happened in Southampton. The Tories were defending 14 seats, and lost 10 to Labour. Labour also won a seat from Lib Dems. This was one of Labour's top target councils. Conservatives were defending controversial record of council cuts.
Labour have recorded a landslide victory in Southampton. More later.
