Britain's two main parties emerged from local elections in England in a draw, with Labour making gains but failing to capture target councils from the Conservatives.

Repeated at a general election, the United Kingdom would be heading for another hung parliament, suggesting that public sentiment has barely shifted since Jeremy Corbyn wiped out Theresa May's Commons majority a year ago.

Even on the BBC's "Projected National Vote Share", Labour would be the largest party in parliament were these results to be replicated at a general election.

"We were disappointed not to win in Hill we had a fantastic candidate, she came so very close to winning that seat and it must be years and years and years since Labour had councillors in Hill ward", said Councillor Ritchie.

Ms May's party gained control of four councils largely thanks to a lack of turnout from Ukip.

He added: "We haven't gone forwards and if we are looking to form an election-winning majority, we can not be confident of that happening based on the results yesterday".

In London, the Tories gained seats in Hillingdon - which some had touted as a potential Labour target - and won nine more seats in Sutton, despite the area remaining in Lib Dem control.

While the Conservatives took all six Parliamentary seats in Cornwall Labour leapfrogged the Lib Dems into second for the proportion of votes taken.

"But there is also an opportunity because if she gets this right she will have two clear years of "normal" politics before the next election, and Labour could be in cataclysmic meltdown by then".

"This is a shameless and cynical move that makes an absolute mockery of the pledge and shows the nasty party never went away".

The Conservatives gained the London council of Barnet from no overall control and held their flagship London councils of Westminster and Wandsworth.

The Tories won seven of the 10 seats up for election, giving them 17 seats on the council.

For as long as Theresa May remains leader of her party - with her growing vulnerability, this looks precarious - she will not be calling a general election any time soon.

Labour insisted Carroll was reinstated on Friday, as the votes were being counted, but the Tories said she had been reinstated earlier. But people have worked so hard, they've worked tirelessly to get this result.

Leader of the Labour Group, Angela Wilkins, held her seat at Crystal Palace with 33pc of the vote.

"It seems to me that what the Conservative Party must be able to do in the coming weeks and months is to deliver on Brexit in a way that will satisfy the aspirations of Leave voters", Curtice said.

At 35% the Conservatives' estimated vote is three points down on what it achieved in last year's county council elections and is on a par with its performance in the local elections held on the same day as the 2015 general election.

The party, which saw a net gain of more than 70 councillors, also secured the Hertfordshire council of Three Rivers from no overall control.

Deputy Labour leader Tom Watson acknowledged the Jewish community had "sent us a message" and said the party had to learn lessons when it came to dealing with anti-Semitism in its own ranks.
