Election 2012: Mapped: Preston City Council election results
Labour increased their majority slightly to maintain control of Preston City Council in last night’s election.
The Conservatives lost two seats and the Liberal Democrats one as the status quo prevailed largely across the board in the wards up for election.
Two independent councillors were elected, Terry Cartwright representing Deepdale and Michael Lavalette for the Town Centre both returning to the council chamber.
