Ultimately, the election did nothing to change the make-up of the city authority; Labour had 44 councillors going into yesterday's vote while the Conservatives had 16, and both emerged with the same number of representatives.

The only difference was that both took a seat off each other.

The Conservatives took Bushbury North off Labour while in return Labour won Merry Hill from the Tories, winning by a mere six votes after a recount.

Conservative Deputy Leader Simon Bennett, who won Bushbury North, described his win as an incredible feeling, while newly elected Labour councillor Carol Hyatt was overwhelmed and excited to get started.
