Brighton & Hove City Council - Labour win most seats

Labour take minority control of Brighton and Hove City Council away from the Greens.

Tally of councillors: Labour 23, Conservative 20, Green 11.

Labour councillors have a choice, their party may choose to go it alone as a no overall control council like the Greens did last year - bearing in mind they have just 3 more councillors than the Conservative group. Or Labour councillors may go into a coalition with the Greens.

In the next few days the Labour Party must announce their decision. Then, the Labour group will have to announce who the leader of the council will be by 21st May 2015.
