Lib Dems win seats in West Sussex

The Tories have maintained control of West Sussex County Council but the Liberal Democrats party has seen a slight increase in its share of seats.

The Conservative party has won 48, the Liberal Democrats have won 21, up from 16 before the election, and Labour has two seats.

Of the 70 county council seats up for grabs, 47 were in Tory hands, the Lib Dems had 16 and Labour held six.

Boundary changes meant the number of seats contested was reduced from 71.

European elections results will be announced on Sunday evening.
