  1. Analysis: Derbyshire's 'Red Wall' turns blue

    Today's results mean that, for the first time, the Conservatives have had back-to-back administrations at the council.

    Labour saw its share of seats on the authority, which it has held for 36 years out of the past 48, reduce from 24 seats to 14.

    With the defeat of Labour leader Paul Smith and fellow party runner Steve Marshall-Clarke, nearly the whole of the Amber Valley map is now blue – with a Green Party victory in Duffield preventing a Tory clean sweep.

    This has been compounded by the blow of the Labour group's deputy leader, Mick Wall, also losing his seat.

    The map is also entirely blue in South Derbyshire, with the Tories completing a clean sweep of all eight divisions.

    It shows a further march from Derbyshire away from its historic voting patterns, as the "Red Wall" turns blue.
