Lib Dems gain control of St Albans with 5 gains

Good news from Hertfordshire. We have taken control of St Albans District Council.

Chris White has been leading a minority administration since 2019 but we have now made 5 gains to take total control.

Chris was re-elected with 62% of the vote in  Clarence ward.

Here are some of the delighted victors:

Yesterday, Liberal Democrats gained 4 seats on Hertfordshire County Council to take them to 23 seats. Another 7 and the Tories lose control…

Congratulations to everyone for a fabulous effort.

    Great result in St Albans but I have spent afternoon watching the live feed of Oxfordshire County Council result as of a few minutes ago Lib Dems had increased there number from 13 to 20 Councillors same as Tories with just 3 seats to declare. BBC have yet to update there so called rolling coverage to give this great result. Give it some coverage.
