ConHome also understands that the Conservatives won the most deprived ward in Wales - Rhyl West (Denbighshire). More when we get it...

UPDATE. Cllr Paul Rogers reports:

Rhyl West Town Council gain. The gain came in the West Ward, viewed as the one of the most deprived ward in Wales.  For years this ward has been viewed as the safest of Labour seats, but thanks to the work of Mike Espley (our candidate)his family, Matt Wright (PPC). John Bellis, Ian Gunning, Rhyl Members and the others who have been out pounding the wet streets we have pulled off a stunning victory.

The result is as follows:

Conservative 158
Labour   147
Lib  67
Ind 22
BNP 16
