THE LEADER of Warwick District Council has lost his seat in the local elections.

Conservative candidate Andrew Mobbs could only muster enough votes for sixth place among the 11 candidates vying for the Kenilworth Park Hill seat.

And the Tories have also lost overall control of the council after losing 11 seats. They now have 19 seats.

Liberal Democrats and Greens were the big winners both gaining seven seats each, leaving the Lib-Dems with nine, and the Greens with eight respectively.

Labour lost four seats to leave them with five.

Whitnash Residents Association retained their three seats.

New ward boundaries mean the number of councillors has been reduced from 46 to 44.
