Alan Rhodes, who won back his seat with 2,000 votes, said was “very grateful” but “saddened” after Labour lost full control of Nottinghamshire County Council.

The Conservatives are now the biggest group at the authority, securing 31 seats- but failed to win an overall majority.

In Bassetlaw, the Conservatives saw particular victory in Retford where the town’s East and West seats were snatched from the Independents and Labour by Steve Vickers and Mike Quigley.

Steve Vickers, who won by 37 votes, said he was “stunned” at the gain and was looking forward to making sure Retford “finally gets what it deserves”.

Kevin Greaves, Labour, was re-elected for Worksop South.
