The Conservatives have so far made considerable gains over Labour, adding 12 councils and an extra 239 councillors to their overall tally by the end of Saturday.

They also won the high profile Hartlepool by-election by a significant amount over Labour – nearly 7,000 votes to be precise – and a Tory MP was elected for the first time in the constituency’s history.

All 129 seats have been declared.
