Lancashire County Council elections 2021: Fylde 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.
All six divisions in Fylde are now Tory-held after the party snatched two seats that had previously been held by independents who stood down at this election - Liz Oades in Fylde East and Paul Hayhurst in Fylde West.
The party retained the four other seats it already held, giving the Tories a clean sweep in the borough.
