Labour has suffered further defeat in local elections, losing control of another Derbyshire council.
Of the 15 wards being contested in Amber Valley, 11 had been held by Labour.
But nine of these red seats have turned blue, with Labour only holding two wards, Belper North and Somercotes.
The highest profile casualty was council leader Chris Emmas-Williams, who was defeated in his Codnor & Waingroves seat.
The Conservatives also held four seats.
The council make up is now Conservatives 28, Labour 16, Green 1.
