Labour has easily kept control of Rhondda Cynon Taf, although Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood pointed to advances by her party in her Assembly constituency of the Rhondda.
Some significant targets for Plaid Cymru are councils where counting is only just getting underway. Rhondda Cynon Taf, Caerphilly and Anglesey are all places where the party is looking to gain power. The result in Gwynedd, the only council where Plaid is defending an overall majority won't be known until later, and the same is true in Carmarthenshire, which Plaid Cymru runs in a coalition with the independents.
So far it looks positive for Plaid Cymru with our stronger areas yet to be announced.
We have broken new ground in all parts of Wales from Aberavon to Blaenau Gwent, and from Bridgend to Wrexham. It’s also good to be holding and gaining seats where we have run councils like in Ceredigion, with our strong record on running public services despite the onslaught of cuts.
The story of the night seems to be Plaid and Tory gains versus Labour and UKIP losses. I look forward to seeing the results of the remaining counts across the country.
