THURROCK Conservatives were smiling at the end of another election count in Thurrock in the early hours of this morning (Friday, 6 May) after maintaining their grip on the borough Council.
Sixteen seats were up for grabs across the borough and though there were some disappointments for the Tories, there were also some gains. Overall they won nine of the 16 seats available.
It was a bruising evening for Labour, who had hopes of paring the Conservative majority, but ended up with one seat less than they started and now have their least ever number of seats on the council.
