Lancashire County Council elections: Pendle results
The Conservatives have retained control of Lancashire County Council after securing an outright majority at County Hall for the second consecutive election.
The party captured 48 seats - two more than at the last county poll in 2017 - comfortably surpassing the 43-seat threshold needed for it to remain in power.
Labour also gained two seats and the Green Party added a second county councillor to their number on the authority.
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.
Pendle political veteran David Whip lost his seat on the authority for only the second time since being elected to County Hall in the 1980s. In the two-member Pendle Rural seat, the Conservatives secured both seats - with the incumbent Jenny Purcell being joined by fellow Tory Mike Goulthorp.
It was the only division in the borough to change hands.
