Round Two of the Election

Next we learn who is going to run our Councils

With all of the local seats in the General Election having reported attention turns to voting in local boroughs.

Although electors cast their vote at the same time the count to decide who is elected to the Council is not taking place until this afternoon.

Most counts in the local area are expected to begin around midday with results being reported between 4-6pm.

In Wandsworth the long term grip of the Conservative on the Council looks unlikely to be troubled particularly considering their win in the Battersea constituency and increased majority in Putney.

In Wimbledon, following the increase seen in Tory MP's Stephen Hammond's majority, the Conservatives are likely to gain more seats.   The 2006 council election saw the Conservatives just gain control from Labour, with 30 seats, against Labour's 27 and 3 Merton Park Residents.
