"They're individual contests being fought in very differing situations, from local council-level, issue-driven campaigns up to large mayoral fights with some well-known politicians", a Labour party spokesperson said.

The Conservatives took most of those seats, and Nuttall said that was a price Ukip is "prepared to pay" for the prize of leaving the EU.

But the shock of the election came in Padiham and Burnley West.

If Labour can find any comfort, it is in Wales, where the party retained control of Cardiff and other cities and lost seats to Independents rather than the Conservatives.

Tories were celebrating historic gains across the country, picking up more than 450 councillors and gaining control of 10 authorities as they made deep inroads into parts of Scotland and Wales which had been no-go areas for a generation.

By 9pm on Friday, with all of the results in, the Tories had gained 563 seats while Labour had lost 382.

Sunday Telegraph columnist Liam Halligan told CNN that while UKIP's success had effectively pushed former Prime Minister David Cameron into calling the referendum, it now struggled to seem relevant.

Left Foot Forward goes back in time to establish what happened in those local elections held just before a General Election.

The prime minister says she offers the most stable leadership to take Britain through two years of tough Brexit negotiations, and she took aim at Brussels on the eve of the local elections.

"It looks as if we have made so far some encouraging gains. but it's very early days yet".

They suffered a net loss of 32 seats, but Farron believes their performance in areas like St Albans, where he addressed activists, prove his party is on track to more than double its presence of nine MPS at Westminster in the General Election.

There have been substantial gains for the Tories in the south west of the region.

But as YouGov has said, today's results are likely to represent a best-case scenario for Labour: The Conservatives generally do better in general elections than locals, and in Wales in recent weeks were polling 12 points higher for the general election than the local.

But the broad trends are clear, with the UKIP confirmed as having suffered the maximum casualties in the contest.

For the past four years, no party had overall control of East Sussex.

Often council elections will be seen as opportunities to safely give parties a kicking, but the unique situation we now face is that local elections have been held in the full knowledge that a General Election will be held next month.
