Lancashire County Council elections 2021: South Ribble results
The Conservatives have retained control of Lancashire County Council after securing an outright majority at County Hall for the second consecutive election.
The party captured 48 seats - two more than at the last county poll in 2017 - comfortably surpassing the 43-seat threshold needed for it to remain in power.
Labour also gained two seats and the Green Party added a second county councillor to their number on the authority.
It was a disappointing day for the Liberal Democrats, who lost two seats - one of which was previously held by county group leader David Whipp.
Independent representation on the council was also wiped out, with the authority having had four members not aligned to a political party before this week's vote.
In the eight county divisions, there was no change to the political make-up of any of the seats. Conservative cabinet colleagues Michael Green and Graham Gooch easily retained their Moss Side and Farington and South Ribble West seats respectively with the latter enjoying a more than 2,000 majority.
Against the backdrop of a disappointing day elsewhere in the county, Lib Dem David Howarth's doubling of his majority in his Penwortham West seat was a highlight for the party.
