COUNCIL ELECTIONS: 'Momentum with Labour' - Carwyn

First published in Election news

WELSH Labour say they have 'confounded expectations' with the latest election results delivering five new Labour councils with many more candidates winning seats elsewhere.

Newport, Merthyr, Caerphilly and Blaenau Gwent councils have been gained so far by Welsh Labour in a night of high drama that saw the party's biggest and brightest ever local election campaign.

Welsh Labour Leader, Carwyn Jones said: "The momentum is clearly with Welsh Labour tonight. We are taking seats from every party across the country - with impressive gains in Wrexham, Caerphilly, Newport and a total Lib Dem wipe out in Merthyr.

"We have reconnected with people and our community campaigning has resonated with voters right across Wales."
