The full local election results for Neath Port Talbot as Labour loses overall control
Labour have lost its grip on Neath Port Talbot. The party's share of the vote in the local election 2022 has dramatically reduced, with the party falling from 43 seats to just 25.
Although Labour remains the party with the highest number of representatives, Plaid now has 12 representatives and the number of independents is 16 - up from just five in 2017.
If the two groups were to agree an alliance, it would mean Labour would lose control of the authority. There is no guarantee of that however, because the independents are, by definition, are not a single party group.
There are two outstanding seats to be decided later this month. It follows the postponement of the election in Port Talbot ward, following the death of independent candidate Andrew Tutton during election campaigning.
Meanwhile, the Green Party has their very first Neath Port Talbot councillor, following the success of candidate Nathan Goldup-John in Coedffranc Central.
And the Lib Dems have also improved on their vote. They had a single councillor in 2017, and now they have two, Ceri Phillips and Helen Clarke who took two seats in Coedffranc West.
