UKIP have gained seats in the Norfolk and Suffolk County Council elections.

Norfolk County council is no longer under Conservative control.

UKIP gained 14 seats and labour gained 9, which is enough to leave it with no overall control.  The Tories lost 20 seats

Suffolk County Council has stayed under Conservative control but UKIP now have 9 seats, 8 of them are new, and Labour have gained 11 seats.

That's pushed the Lib Dems into 4th in the council and left the Conservative majority at just 3.  The Tories lost 16 seats overall.

And UKIP's leader Nigel Farage says the party's success in the local council elections has sent a shockwave through Government.
