Over the whole of England Lib Dems gained 683 seats and lost only 7 – 43% of lost seats (2 of them) were losses in East Devon to East Devon Alliance – Peter Burrows (Seaton) and Douglas Hull (Axminster).
Tory turned “IndieLight” Ian Thomas remains Leader till then.
However, here is a list of your new councillors:
Early on, Devonlive was quickest with results but presentation is clunky, Archant came second – too many photographs to scroll through before reaching results, EDDC third – their official result often trailing the other two.
Not to mention EDDC publishing the wrong result in Seaton (but Owl just did!).
However, Archant cleaned up their page a bit (though called JOHN Loudon David at one point); Devonlive needs far too many clicks to get to badly presented results, EDDC … well, it’s EDDC isn’t it! Where else would a district council count still be going on at 5 pm in two locations…
Well done, Archant – not something Owl says a lot …
