Labour biggest party in just three councils

With just Glasgow and North Lanarkshire still to declare, Labour has lost more than 100 councillors and is no longer the biggest party in former strongholds such as Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire.

Just three of Scotland's councils now have Labour as the largest party - East Lothian, Inverclyde and Midlothian.
