Tories lose control in Oxfordshire

The Conservatives have been dealt a blow in Oxfordshire, losing outright control of the county council.

The Tories, taking 34% of the vote, fell one short of the 32 seats needed to maintain control of the authority, which they have held since 2005.

Labour finished with 15 seats - including one in Tory heartland, within Prime Minister David Cameron's constituency - while the Liberal Democrats took 11.

Both secured 16% of the vote - alongside Ukip, who failed to win a single seat

Councillor Ian Hudspeth, leader of the council, gives his reaction to the result and the prospect of organising a coalition.
