The returning Leader of Wandsworth Ravi Govindia has said his party's victory one "my colleagues will be proud to relish".

Mr Govinda said the Conservatives had won because the local "brand is so strong".

He said: "It’s about saying this is where we have attention to detail.

"This is not about making grandiose statements."

Labour had "wasted an awful lot of effort and manpower," he said.

"They should reflect on a loss for them."

The Conservatives retained control of Kensington and Chelsea, which had been a key target for Labour

Of the results declared so far, the only councils to change are Richmond-upon-Thames and Barnet.

Richmond-upon-Thames was regained by the Liberal Democrats after eight years while the Conservatives won Barnet, which no party previously had control of.

Labour increased its number of councillors across London, but has failed to take control of any new councils including key targets such as Wandsworth, Westminster, and Kensington and Chelsea.

Views on Wandsworth

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.

Conservatives hold Wandsworth

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.
