Wrea Green, unsuprisingly, says no to Labour, with candidate Annemarie McLaughlin polling just 56 votes. Challenger Janet Wardell gathers a respectable 364 votes, but Conservative Frank Andrews retains the seat with 527 votes.


Staining and Weeton ward sees Conservatives John Singleton and Albert Pounder return.

Independent Maxine Chew retains her Singleton seat.

Ray Thomas, Len Davies and Richard Fradley win three seats for the Conservatives in Clifton ward. Independent Ken Hopwood loses out.

A trio of independents win in Kirkham North; Keith Beckett, Paul Hodgson and Elaine Silverwood.

No surprises in Eccleston as Paul Hayhurst (independent) romps to victory.


A shock as Conservative Fabian Craig-Wilson consoled by colleagues after a recount confirms she has lost her seat to Fylde’s first Labour member for some years - Jan Barker. Council leader Conservative Susan Fazackerley and colleague


Liz Oades and Peter Hardy – both independents – returned in Kirkham South. Challenger Jed Sullivan, who also stood for Labour in the parliamentary election for Fylde, loses out.


Fylde Mayor Kevin Eastham, currently laying a wreath at VE Day anniversary event at Ashton Gardens in St Annes, loses his seat in Fairhaven ward. Conservatives Brenda Blackshaw, David Donaldson and Cheryl Little win.


Recount called in central ward after sitting councillor Fabian Craig-Wilson appears to have lost out by a solitary vote.


Lib Dem Tony Ford and Conservatives Gail Goodman and Graeme Neale elected in Ashton ward, St Annes.


Conservative trio Ben Aitken, former Council leader David Eaves, and Richard Redcliffe re-elected in Ansdell


Independent James Mulholland and Conservative Thomas Threlfall retain Freckleton East.
