Counting has been underway all day at the Guildhall in Winchester following the biggest election in the city since 2002. The results were confirmed this afternoon. The Conservatives have held on to control of the city council, despite a tough battle from the Lib Dems. Kate Bunkall was at the count on Saturday. Here's her report.
The Conservatives retain control of Winchester City Council after this week's local elections. The entire body was up for re-election. The count has taken place at the city's Guildhall today.
These elections were for a third or half of local council seats - not full councils. So, Labour holds Southampton with a slim majority of 25 councillors - winning 12 seats on the night. The Conservatives have 19 seats.
Labour now has 19 councillors in Crawley - gaining one extra seat. The Conservatives have 17.
The Lib Dems in Eastleigh - 38 seats overall - against the Tories 6. The Lib Dems held 12 and gained one extra. The Conservative party - 2.
The Conservatives remain the largest party in Portsmouth with 19 seats - but fall short of a majority, with no overall control. Tory leader, Councillor Donna Jones, said her minority administration will continue to work with UKIP and the Labour Party.
With the story, in the South - here's Rachel Hepworth.
There was something to celebrate overnight for the two main political parties in this year's local elections.
Labour kept control of the councils in Oxford and Reading, where they took seats from the Greens. And the Conservatives held on to all their councils in our region.
The Socialists now have two extra seats on Oxford City Council, gained at the expense of the Greens, and now have 35 councillors.
And at Reading, although they didn't add to their tally, they're still in overall control with a total of 31 seats. Not one of the 16 wards changed hands.
