The Conservatives hope to gain overall control of Shropshire CC, after the county loses its strongest Labour held territory next year, reports the Birmingham Post (p4).

When the Wrekin becomes a unitary authority after 1 April next year, the county council will shrink from 66 seats to 44. This Thursday the Tories will be defending 18 of the 44 seats up for election and hope to gain five more to have a majority of 23 members.

Labour says the trends in Shropshire have been moving away from the Conservatives for the past 12 years.
