The Conservatives increased their total seats in Maidstone from 27 to 29
The Conservative Party has won the local election in Maidstone after 25 years of a hung council.
The party has also retained control in Tunbridge Wells and Swale in Thursday's local elections.
In Tunbridge Wells they increased their majority by three seats to 44, leaving four seats for the Liberal Democrats.
Swale Borough Council has also seen an increased Tory majority with one less seat for Labour, Liberal Democrats and independent members.
Maidstone's Labour leader Morel D'Souza lost his seat in the Fant ward to Conservative candidate Stephen Paine.
In a close race, the Conservative Party increased their total seats in Maidstone Borough Council from 27 to 29.
The Liberal Democrats, who now have 21 councillors, lost one seat while Labour's representation dropped from three to one. There are also five independents on the council, up from four.
Councillor Eric Hotson, who has been leader of the Conservative party in Maidstone for 10 years, said he was delighted with the result.
"I'm over the moon," he said. "I fear it's the end of the Labour Party in Maidstone. It will be very difficult for them to come back now."
He said his party had proved their worth in a "trial run" two years ago when they had formed a minority administration.
"I think we've shown honesty throughout the campaign," he added.
