Local elections: Nigel Farage hails UKIP's 'remarkable' night
UKIP leader Nigel Farage has hailed gains in council elections across England as a "game changer".
His party won over 140 seats and averaged 25% of the vote in the wards where it was standing.
The Conservatives lost control of 10 councils, but retained 18, while Labour gained two councils and boosted its councillors by nearly 300.
David Cameron said he would "work really hard to win back" supporters who had decided to vote for UKIP.
