Labour enjoyed a good election night in Rochdale as the party secured all but four of the seats up for grabs in the local elections to maintain its grip on control of Rochdale Council.

Voters went to the polls to elect one councillor in each of Rochdale’s 20 wards and Labour secured 16 of them, though it was a very close-run thing in Littleborough Lakeside where Richard Jackson edged out Conservative John Hartley by just seven votes. Labour also had success in Middleton, beating the Middleton Independents Party into second place in all three of the area’s wards with the local party’s leader Lee Wolf losing his seat in North Middleton.

The Conservatives won three seats on the night, while the Liberal Democrats won one.

The election results mean Labour now has 49 of the 60 seats on Rochdale Council, a gain of three. The Conservatives have lost one councillor but remain the second-biggest party with nine elected representatives, while the Liberal Democrats have three. The Middleton Independents Party, having lost two councillors, now has two.
