    The council has a total of 48 seats, and a third of these, 16 seats in total, were up for election this year.

    The Conservatives took control from Labour in 2002 and were able to bolster their majority further this time round gaining three seats. The Liberal Democrats, who started off with no councillors, gained two from Labour.

    It means the current political make-up is: Con 31, Lab 15, Lib Dem 2.
