If you are joining us: Conservatives lose big in Essex

BBC News Online

The Conservatives have lost control of four councils across Essex.

Chelmsford City Council was the scene of the biggest surprise. The Lib Dems overturned a 45-seat majority to take over the authority.

Southend, Basildon and Tendring fell to no overall control, while Thurrock and Colchester also remained without an outright majority.

There were Conservative holds in Castle Point, Maldon, Epping, Rochford, Brentwood and Braintree.

Harlow stayed under Labour control.

Liberal Democrats 'smiling'

Andrew Sinclair

BBC Look East political correspondent

I think the Conservatives will still be the main party of government in the East, but the big story seems to be the Liberal Democrats.

They've made gains in Braintree and Southend; they are making gains in Chelmsford, have taken a seat from the Greens in Cambridge, and seem to be confident of taking control of North Norfolk.

The smiles are on the faces of the Liberal Democrats. The Conservatives? I am not sure they are smiling.
