Labour make gains at the polls

It's been a bad night at the polls for the Government while Labour's done well in the local elections.

Across the country they have gained almost 400 seats with the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats collectively losing over 380. If this was a general election it would put labour back in power 

Local Elections:

More than 20 councils have been taken over by Labour including Birmingham where MP Jack Dromey's won..and says the coalition didn't help themselves:

''In recent weeks there's been very strong reaction against the budget.. we will now have a Labour Birmingham. It will be very tough because of the legacy the coalition have left for us but Labour will make a big difference in this city.''

Meanwhile Walsall was a contentious seat but has stayed the same with No Overall Control.
