The Financial Times (3 April, p4) reported that a series of important gains in the county council elections has put the Conservative party back in control of a number of England's biggest authorities.

Some Conservative council candidates performed strongly in parts of the country where their party suffered the most serious election losses, said the paper, which carried the election results.

Successes included taking control of Hampshire, Cambridgeshire, Kent, Bedfordshire, Surrey, West Sussex and Lincolnshire. All except Hampshire had been under no single part's control since the last county council elections in 1993.
