    Labour secures majority at Worthing, Conservatives hold on to Adur

    Labour has secured a majority at Worthing Borough Council, taking two Castle wards, Northbrook, Gaisford and Marine from the Conservatives and Tarring from Lib Dems.

    It has 23 seats compared to the Conservatives’ 12 with a Lib Dem and Independent.

    Meanwhile the Conservatives at Adur retained a majority despite losing two seats to Labour and one to Greens.

    They now have 16 seats, with Labour now on nine, with two independents and two Greens.

    What are seats to watch out for?

    Three to watch out for would be Marine (where senior Conservative Edward Crouch is defending his seat), Gaisford (where council leader Kevin Jenkins represents, but has stood in Goring instead) and Tarring (where Lib Dem Bob Smytherman is not seeking re-election).
