The newly-formed authority showed little surprise with the overall winner, although the close battle between remain Green and Liberal Democrats is food for thought.

Change UK - 2132 | Conservatives - 7758

English Democrats - 524 | Green - 11289

Labour - 4818 | Lib Dems - 13893

Brexit - 27745 | UKIP - 2283

Suffolk's county town followed the national trends as Labour and Conservatives suffered similar losses, while a Liberal Democrat resurgence wasn't enough to stop the Brexit bus in its tracks.

Labour - 5095 | Lib Dems - 5383

Brexit - 11367 | UKIP - 1208

Nigel Farage called Clacton the "most euro-sceptic and patriotic town" in the country - while that isn't for certain, Tendring district proved to be a stronghold for his new Brexit Party, polling more than 16,000 more votes than the Lib Dems.

Change UK - 1,086 | Conservatives - 3,282

West Suffolk

The Liberal Democrats fought hard in the newly-contested district but predictably, as with the rest of the region, they were unable to capitalise on Labour and Conservative losses as the Brexit Party took top spot.
