In Swindon, the Conservatives have kept control of the council - just. They now have a majority of just one seat. It was a very close contest with Labour, who had targeted Swindon as a possible gain. The whole council was up for election, with boundary changes in place.
Labour gained 7 seats, while the Conservatives lost 8 and the Independents also lost 1. The make-up of the council now stands: Conservatives: 29, Labour: 24, Lib Dem: 4
