Preston City Council had 20 seats up for election in this year’s election with voting taking place from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 3 May.

The votes are counted at Preston Guild Hall and there’s likely to be a number of new faces on the council as more than 10 councillors decided to step down rather than seek re-election.

Below are all the ward where there is an election and the results are next to each ward.

You can also recap live updates as the night unfolded as Labour keep control of the Town Hall.

The final results saw Labour on 35 councillors (+2 on the night), Conservatives on 17 councillors (-2 on the night) and the Lib Dems remain on five councillors.

Turnout was 30.85 per cent, down from 33 per cent in 2016.
