Watford Lib Dems are strengthened
The Liberal Democrats have strengthened their grip on Watford by winning six seats in the local elections.

The Labour Party lost four seats, the Conservatives lost three and the Green Party gained one.

The new make-up of the council is Greens two, Lib Dems 26, Tories four, Lab four.

At Three Rivers council the Lib Dems remained in control after gaining two seats from the Conservatives, but the Tory Party held South Bedfordshire.

St Albans council remains under no overall control, despite five gains by the Lib Dems at the expense of both Labour and the Conservatives.

There was also no change at Stevenage where the Lib Dems' gain of one seat from ruling group Labour still leaves the latter with 32 of the 39 seats (the Lib Dems now have four seats and the Tories have three).

Councils in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire due to declare on Friday include Bedford, Broxbourne, Hertsmere, North Hertfordshire and Dacorum.
