Local Elections 2008
All the results from our two councils.
KINGSTON UPON HULL CITY COUNCIL
The Liberal Democrats last night regained overall control of Hull City Council, after gaining five seats in the local authority elections (Beverley, Boothferry, Derringham, Newington and Pickering), including two from Labour . They now have 33 of the 59 seats available.
For many the story of the night was the former leader of Hull City Council and former Chair of the Humberside Police Authority Colin Inglis being voted back onto the council in the Myton ward. The man he replaced, Deputy Leader of the Labour Group in the city Darren Hale, managed to win a seat in the St Andrews ward.
Lib Dem 33 (+5)
Turnout 25.5 %
NORTH EAST LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL
In North East Lincolnshire, its very much a case of as you were, as both the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives gained a seat meaning it remains a hung council.
Personnel wise, the Chairman of Grimsby Town Football Club John Fenty joined the ranks of the council as he was elected in the vacant Humberston and New Waltham ward.
Lib Dem 20 (+1)
