The Conservatives have extended their control of Rochford District Council.
They gained an extra three seats taking the Tory total tally to 28 on the council. The Liberal Democrats and UKIP both have three seats, Green two and Labour one. The Conservative gains have all come from the Rochford District Residents group which now has two seats.
BBC Radio Essex's Danielle Robinson @danni_robinson tweets: UKIP candidates feeling confident in Rochford encouraged by success already in Essex. Leader of Rochford Council Terry Cutmore says they expect to make some losses to UKIP.
