Good news this morning: the Tories were wiped out in five separate council by-elections, with two safe Tory wards going to Labour!
Cate Woodward won a seat for Labour from the Tories in Wollaton West with a majority of 243 votes.
Some rip roaring Labour election news to wake up to this morning, congratulations to @MedwayLabour & @ng_labour for their gains from the Tories & to @HarlowLabour’s newest councillor @ChrisJVince #labourwinninghere

Labour also made huge gains in the Tory Kentish heartlands of Rochester West.
Disastrous night for the Tories in latest round of local elections losing ALL FIVE seats being defended.
LAB 4 (+1)
OTH 3 (+3)
LD 1 (+1)
CON 0 (-5)
