It was a disappointing day for the Liberal Democrats, who lost two seats - one of which was previously held by county group leader David Whipp.

Independent representation on the council was also wiped out, with the authority having had four members not aligned to a political party before this week's vote.

Across each of the eight divisions in Wyre, there was no change of political persuasion - with the borough remaining Conservative-dominated, save for Labour's retention of the Fleetwood East seat held by Lorraine Beavers.

All of the seats in the borough were retained by incumbents.

Here are Wyre's full results.
