The Conservatives have bolstered their strength in North East Lincolnshire with eight gains out of 14 seats available.
There were 61 candidates contesting across 12 wards. It means the Conservatives now hold 31 seats – up from 23.
Meanwhile, Labour have lost six seats for a total of eight, while the Liberal Democrats lost one and UKIP also lost their single place on the authority.
Conservatives took overall control of the council in 2019 after wrestling control from a Labour/Liberal Democrat alliance. The result will be a big blow to the Labour party who were hoping to regain seats following their loss of power.
The turnout this year was 26.54%. For full results see North East Lincolnshire Council’s election website.
