Of the 19 seats which were up for elections Labour won 11, the Tories won seven, and independents won none. The remaining winner was Cllr Ian Posyer, who became the first Green Party councillor in the city.

Cllr Posyer said “one green in the room can make a huge difference” and hoped his election would focus debate on climate change and help engage with communities.

Meanwhile Labour’s Dylan Tippetts became the city’s first openly trans councillor , who said being elected is an “amazing feeling”.
