Birmingham local elections 2022 live – updates as all city council seats on the line

Labor have retained control of Birmingham City Council in a day of ‘swings and roundabouts’ for the ruling party. The Tories were the biggest losers, while the Lib Dems and Greens both made gains.

A total of 101 seats across 69 wards in Birmingham City Council were up for grabs in the 2022 local elections.

The count follows a busy night of political activity which saw Labor make gains in Dudley and the Tories win seats in Sandwell. More widely, the Conservatives have lost ground after a national dip in the polls.

The Birmingham count was taking place at Utillita Arena – with results flowing through the day from 11.30am.
