The Conservatives overtook the Lib Dems to become the single largest party on Bath & North East Somerset Council, which remains under no overall control.

But they were not so successful elsewhere in the region.

Having been the largest group on West Somerset District Council, they lost four seats and now face 16 independent councillors.

They also lost long-standing Tory councillor Elgar Jenkins from Bath & North East Somerset Council.

Other councillors to be ejected from their BANES seats included Labour group leader Matt Davis, independent group leader, Phyllis Gay and Nicole O'Flaherty - whose portfolio had included the controversial and contentious Bath Spa.
