Six results have so far been declared at Three Rivers District Council in Hertfordshire.
It's two holds for the Liberal Democrats, plus they have won Leavesden ward where the previous councillor resigned and went independent in March.
Labour hold in South Oxhey and it's a Tory hold for Chorleywood North and Sarratt ward and Moor Park and Eastbury ward.
Seven more results are expected and the current score is 3 Lib Dem, 2 Con and 1 Lab.
Four results have already been declared in Hertfordshire, in the local elections.
We're still awaiting the results from Three Rivers, North Herts and Watford, but counting is now under way at Three Rivers, so as soon as the results come in, we will bring them to you.

We've brought you the results of four Hertfordshire councils where elections took place on Thursday, and we're not expecting more results until later this morning.
In Watford, voters were choosing a new mayor as well as borough councillors. The mayoral vote will be counted first, starting at 09:30.
Each of its 12 wards returns three councillors to serve four-year terms, and in 2018 this will be one councillor from each ward - so 12 out of 36 seats have been up for grabs. The council currently has 25 Lib Dem councillors and 11 Labour - a change would seem unlikely.
Whoever wins the mayoral election, we're guaranteed a new face, with long-standing Lib Dem mayor Dorothy Thornhill retiring after 16 years.
The North Herts District Council results are due at about 11:00. The Conservatives have had control since 1999, and 19 out of 49 seats have been contested. Three Tory councillors were not standing this time, and five Labour councillors had either stood down or stood in different seats.
The results for Three Rivers District Council, where 13 out of 39 seats were up for election, are due at about 14:00 and could be ones to watch. Since a by-election in January 2017, the Liberal Democrats have held a majority on the council, having previously been a minority administration. Two of their seats were being defended by new candidates - the same as for the Tories - and in March a Lib Dem councillor resigned and went independent.
Polling has begun for council elections in the three counties.
Across the country, 150 councils are electing new councillors, and there are six mayoral contests.
Seven Hertfordshire district councils have elections today, with a third of seats up for grabs on each local authority, with some by-elections also being held:
- North Hertfordshire
- St Albans
- Three Rivers
- Welwyn Hatfield
A third of seats at the unitary Milton Keynes Council are also being contested and there's also the Watford mayoral election.
Voting ends at 22:00 and BBC East will be providing live online coverage.
