English Democrats - 226 | Green - 6707
Labour - 3401 | Lib Dems - 11114
Brexit - 17034 | UKIP - 1368

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.
Change UK - 825 | Conservatives - 2669
English Democrats - 207 | Green - 4164
Labour - 5095 | Lib Dems - 5383
Brexit - 11367 | UKIP - 1208

The relatively small area packed a heavy punch when it came to results, with the Brexit Party making up for UKIP's lost ground, while the Conservatives again faced defeat.
Change UK - 699 | Conservatives - 1945
English Democrats - 123 | Green - 2061
Labour - 745 | Lib Dems - 3132

While the Greens and the Liberal Democrats battled it out in the Suffolk flatlands for the remain vote, it was Nigel Farage's party that again took to the top.
Change UK - 803 | Conservatives - 3320
English Democrats - 183 | Green - 5565

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
English Democrats - 372 | Green - 3,499
Labour - 2,523 | Lib Dems - 5,016
Brexit - 21,410 | UKIP - 2,190
Ind. - 73
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.
Change UK - 1760 | Conservatives - 5255
English Democrats - 367 | Green - 5807
Labour - 2748 | Lib Dems - 7464
