On the 2nd May, North East Derbyshire District Council suffered heavy losses to the Conservatives - bucking the national trend of Tory defeats. Bolsover District Council also lost Labour seats and went to No Overall Control for the first time ever. While in High Peak, Labour won back control from the Conservatives for the first time in 16 years. Sheffield City Council lost a small number of seats to the Greens, which has damanged their leading majority. Nationally, the Tories lost over 1300 seats. Labour suffered a net loss of under 80 seats. Minor parties experienced gains.
