The leader of Swansea Council, Chris Holley, has predicted his Liberal Democrat party will get a 'pasting' at tonight's local elections. The Lib Dems have run the council since 2004, but Holley has told our Swansea Reporter Dean Thomas that national politics will mean a bad night for them locally.

Our administration can be very proud of its record, but what has happened nationally has put things out of our control. I predict we will lose a few seats, it's still too early to be sure though.
