The Conservatives have kept control of Norfolk County Council.

The party needed 43 for a majority and won 58, three up on the last local elections in 2017.

Seats were gained in Holt, Wells-next-the-Sea, King's Lynn North & Central and Yarmouth North & Central, although one was lost to an independent in Gayton and Nar Valley.

Council leader Andrew Proctor held on to his Blofield and Brundall seat, his share 1% down on his last victory.

The Green Party gained three seats from Labour in the Norwich area: Mancroft, Nelson and Thorpe Hamlet.
