    Tensions are running high in Southampton as the election count is under way.

    A number of wards across the city turned blue leaving Labour and the Conservatives with 22 seats each.

    Votes for the final four wards are now being counted and the final results are expected to be announced in the next couple of hours.

    It comes as 16 seats at Southampton City Council are up for grabs.

    So far Labour retained seats in Bargate, Bevois, Freemantle and Portswood but lost Bitterne, Coxford, Millbrook, Peartree and Redbridge to the Tories.

    Votes for Shirley, Sholing, Swaythling and Woolston are currently being counted.

    Among the councillors who have just been elected there are Jeremy Moulton, the former leader of the Conservatives who lost his seat in the 2018 elections, and Amanda Guest, who campaigned against the proposed closure of Kentish Road respite centre.

    Meanwhile, Dave Shields, former cabinet member for stronger communities and Darren Paffey, former cabinet member for children learning and education, retained their seats in Freemantle and Bargate respectively.

    There are 48 seats in total with 25 needed for a majority.
