Tories take control of Mid Devon

The Conservatives have control of Mid Devon District Council after winning 24 seats on the 42-seat authority.

The result sees an increase of two seats from 2007, after which no party had overall control.

Liberal Democrats and Independents suffered losses. The Lib Dems won six seats, losing two. Independents lost four, reducing their number to 10.

One Liberal Party candidate is now on the council, plus one classified as "Other".
