Cambridgeshire: Local Election Results

CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL RESULTS
Liberal Democrats lose overall control.
- Liberal Democrats - 21 seats
- Labour - 19 seats
- Conservatives - 1 seat
- Independent - 1 seat
Julian Huppert, the city's Lib Dem MP, said he believed national issues "played a far greater part in the result than they should'' because of aggressive Labour campaigning."
"We have tried to stick to local issues and put forward some really strong local policies. But Labour have played very strongly on national issues and, other than policies on dog poo and multiple occupancy homes, haven't put forward anything constructive."
"I do get the sense on the street that people are disappointed with the Lib Dems nationally."

- Conservatives - 32 seats
- Labour - 11 seats
- Independents - 7 seats
