Every single seat in London was available, with over 6,000 candidates vying for 1,817 seats in the capital.

It was the first local election since 2018, with the ‘partygate’ scandal and cost of living crisis very much on voters minds.

In London, Labour were hoping to build on their fantastic 2018 campaign, where they seized control of 21 out of the 32 boroughs.

Were there any surprises in London?

London threw up some huge surprises which should deeply concern the Conservative Party.

For the first time in its history, Westminster Council has turned Labour, which was not foreseen heading into these local elections.

It didn’t stop there for Labour, as they also turned Wandsworth red too, for the first time since 1978.

Barnet, which was also Conservative heading into the elections also voted for Labour, ending up in a devastating loss for Conservative party in these local elections.
