Conservatives keep control of Rutland County Council

Sarah Ward

Local Democracy Reporting Service

There was relief on the face of the Rutland Conservative leader Oliver Hemsley as his party kept the same number of seats and avoided the fate of some other Tory-run authorities.

There were gains for the Liberal Democrats who increased their number from one to three and the Green Party also gained their first councillor, Miranda Jones, who is currently mayor of Uppingham.

Labour did not win any seats.

The turnout was 37% and the count is taking place at The Victoria Hall in Oakham. Eight councillors have already made it on to the council after being uncontested.

The ruling Conservative Party had five of the uncontested seats and so needs a further nine today to keep control of the authority.
