The results for the East Sussex County Council Elections are now in and the overall figures are as follows:
Conservative 30 (21)
Liberal Democrat 11 (10)
Labour 4 (7)
UKIP 0 (6)
Greens 0 (did not stand))
Various Independents 5 (5)
The figures in brackets are the number of seats held prior to the election.
In our local area (Rye and Eastern Rother) the results are:
Conservative 1,697 votes
Liberal Democrat 318
Keith Glazier, therefore, retains his seat as our local County Councillor
The Conservatives have increased their seats to give them an overall majority this time round. UKIP have been wiped out and Labour, although losing seats, have supplanted them in second place in the Rother ward but remain third to the Lib Dems in the County.
