Sal Brinton speaking at Lib Dem conference.

Thank you! Thank you for everything that gave us the best election night in some years.

We took control of four councils: Richmond & Kingston in London, Three Rivers District in Hertfordshire, and South Cambridgeshire District.

We also had a great increase in the net councillors across England, +75, just behind Labour on +79. The Tories had -33, with UKIP -123.

Labour were predicted to gain a number of councils but didn't, and the Tories lost a net four. Despite the lack of attention from the press, there is no doubt that we had the most significant result of the night.
