Tension is mounting as counting is underway this morning at North Notts Arena for this year’s Notts County Council elections.
The authority last held its elections in June 2009, with the Conservatives securing 35 seats of the 67 total available seats, Labour 13, Liberal Democrat nine and Independent candidates 10 seats.
The turn-out for Notts County Council’s election then was 39.43 per cent.
Following by-elections and other changes, Labour have now gained three seats from the Independents but will need to gain at least 18 seats todayto take control of the council.
