Labour also gained two seats and the Green Party added a second county councillor to their number on the authority.

Fylde did not return any Independents to County Hall

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.
