It was a bad day for the Labour party in Ashfield as just one councillor John Knight was returned to Nottinghamshire County Council.
Ashfield Independent Working All Year Round candidates won five seats on the council, the Conservatives three and Selston Parish Independents one.
Independents in Ashfield, Kirkby and Sutton have stunned Nottinghamshire County Council by gaining six County Council seats.
They polled over 10,000 votes and gained five seats from Labour.
Councillor Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield Independents said, “This is a victory for hard word and dedication to our communities. When I said we could do this - people simply didn’t believe me. To win a few is remarkable but to win big like we have done, for a political party that didn’t even exist 18 months ago is the highlight of my political career.”
Speaking after the final votes were anounced Leader of Ashfield District Council Councillor Cheryl Butler said: “I think Brexit has had something to do with it, going under the radar.
“We know we ahve worked really hard, we have done an open and honest campaign It is not for a lack of a credible policies.”
Here are the results of the 2017 Nottinghamshire County Council elections for the Ashfield district.
