Labour is in charge again at Oxford Town Hall after the Liberal Democrat and Green vote collapsed in last night's local elections.

The city bucked national trends, with Conservatives gaining control of 15 new councils and losing just six across the country compared to Labour's gain of four and loss of 13.

Tories made significant gains in west Oxfordshire and Cherwell District Councils to further strengthen their control of the councils.

Last night was the first time in Oxford since 1979 that all seats have been contested on the same night and the Labour group won 29 seats out of a total of 48, with the Liberal Democrats winning 15 seats, and the Greens only three.
