Labour gains seats from Lib Dems in Cambridge

Labour has gained four seats from the Liberal Democrats on Cambridge City Council.

But despite the changes, the council remains under Lib Dem control, as it has since 2000.

The new city council will be made up of 25 Lib Dem councillors, 14 Labour members, two Greens and one independent.

Labour also won three seats on Peterborough City Council but the Tories retained control of the council.

The election saw Labour gain the seats of two Conservatives and one English Democrat.

The new council will be made up of 38 Conservatives, six Labour members, six independents, three Lib Dems and one English Democrat.

The Conservatives' huge majority at Fenland District Council was reduced slightly with the loss of four councillors, leaving them holding 34 of the 40 seats.

One loss was to the Lib Dems who double their representation from one to two councillors.

The Tories also held Huntingdonshire, East Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire, making gains from the Lib Dems in each council.
