Ukip gained 10 seats in Hampshire and 6 in Buckinghamshire. 

In Hampshire the Tories' number of seats was reduced from 51 to 45 while the Liberal Democrats also saw their numbers fall from 24 to 17. 

Labour fared better by increasing the number of councillors from one to four. The Green Party lost its only seat on the council and independents gained the remaining two of the 78 seats.

In Buckinghamshire Ukip gained 6 seats, Conservatives went from 44 to 36, Lib Dems lost 6 seats from 11 and the Independents and labour kept one seat each.

After recent boundary changes there are 8 fewer seats in Buckinghamshire and 11 fewer seats in Oxfordshire.

Conservatives in Prime Minister David Cameron's Witney constituency were boosted when they defended a marginal West Oxfordshire District seat in a by-election. They held on at Witney East, where Labour had returned another of the ward's councillors last year..
