Councillor gone in 'Brexit protest vote'

BBC Radio Derby

Labour have had a bad night in Derby - they've lost six seats.

The Conservatives have become the largest party in the city but no party has a majority, meaning there'll need to be negotiations to decide who'll control the city.

Chris Poulter
BBC

The Conservatives lost one seat in the city but gained two. Their leader believes Brexit was clearly on the minds of voters.

Chris Poulter said: "It was bound to have an effect.

"Unfortunately we've lost one great councillor on the back of a Brexit protest vote - that's unfortunate but overall we're delighted with what's happened."

All the wards in Derby have now been declared and the city council remains in no overall control.

With one third of the council up for election, Labour lost six of the 11 seats it was defending, making the Conservatives the largest party on the authority with 20 councillors, having gained one.

UKIP and the Lib Dems were both celebrating with two gains each, both at the expense of Labour, while independent candidate Philip Ingall took Chellaston from the Tories.
