It's a big disappointment for the Labour Party. It was definitely within its sights. In the last few months it's poured in significant resources. It's also somewhere where a high-profile Westminster constituency - Battersea - went from Tory to Labour in the general election.
It's been Tory for four decades so, on the other side, the Tories will be very relieved.
The Conservative party has held onto Wandsworth, one of Labour’s key targets.
Wandsworth has been a Tory local government flagship since the heyday of Margaret Thatcher.
But the borough, which covers Labour safe seat Tooting, has become increasingly split in recent years.
It’s been a mixed picture with vote swings in both directions, but as the final votes are tallied up the Conservatives have 32 of the 60 seats.
It was close but council leader Ravi Govindia says the Tories have just held on to Wandsworth.
