The Liberal Democrats have snatched a flagship Conservative council in South Cambridgeshire which did have a Tory majority of 15.

Boundary changes in the area meant that the council already had 12 fewer seats than before the election but the Lib Dems have won an overall majority of their own.

No all the results are in but the Liberal Democrats have already taken 28 seats - five more than necessary for control of the council.

The district was among the strongest Remain areas in the country in the EU referendum two years ago.
