'Tories take a hit while Lib Dems gain ground'

Ben Schofield

Political Reporter, BBC Look East

With more councils being declared, two trends are emerging: the Conservatives taking a hit and the Liberal Democrats gaining ground.

Unlike in other areas of England, Labour are – so far – more or less holding their ground in the East.

Peterborough slipped from Tory control. Their slender majority of one was wiped out. They’re still the biggest party but are three short of overall control.

It’s likely they’ll continue running the council as a minority administration, backed by votes from the hyper-local Werrington First group, who hold all three seats in their ward. The only UKIP councillor in the East lost his seat here.

Labour held Cambridge City while the Greens lost their seat. But the party did gain a seat in Peterborough.

Liberal Democrats 'smiling'

Andrew Sinclair

BBC Look East political correspondent

I think the Conservatives will still be the main party of government in the East, but the big story seems to be the Liberal Democrats.

They've made gains in Braintree and Southend; they are making gains in Chelmsford, have taken a seat from the Greens in Cambridge, and seem to be confident of taking control of North Norfolk.

The smiles are on the faces of the Liberal Democrats. The Conservatives? I am not sure they are smiling.
