Doubts over Corbyn 'bubbling up' again after local election result falls short

But overall, although May herself has been under attack from all sides both within and outside her party, the prime minister is unlikely to face increased pressure on her position - at least from these election results.

A poor set of results is unlikely to spark internal calls for her resignation, but could weaken her authority over a Conservative party deeply divided about the right approach to Brexit ahead of several key parliamentary tests of unity on future customs arrangements with the EU.

Redbridge local elections 2018.

- Labour had a net gain of 82 seats and controls the same number of authorities as before the vote.

In the last of the 150 results declared, Labour's sweep of 42 of the 45 seats in Tower Hamlets also represented a serious defeat for Aspire, the party backed by disgraced former mayor Lutfur Rahman, which won no seats.

Jeremy Corbyn is facing a Labour backlash over his party's "unmitigated disaster" at the polls, which prompted Theresa May to taunt his failure to make an electoral breakthrough.

This was against all the predictions and hopes of the ruling elite and its mouthpieces in the media and Labour's Blairites.

In final online campaign videos, May said her party was delivering local services whilst keeping taxes low.

And for those outside the metropolitan bubble, alarm that white working class towns like Dudley, Nuneaton and Peterborough are turning to the Tories rather than Corbyn's Labour.

"It is actually clear to me that Gerard Batten has enough stout support that the party is going to carry on after Brexit anyway, with different priorities that he is busy sketching out".

None has returned a Labour victory - Momentum did plan to hold an Unseat event in Plymouth, where Mr Corbyn spent the morning celebrating a gain from the Tories, but it was cancelled due to spending limits.

The outcome outside the capital is likely to be less clear-cut.

But in recent weeks May's ratings have been boosted by her handling of national and global crises such as her decision to take military action in Syria and a row with Moscow over the poisoning of a former Russian spy in southern England.

Corbyn has endured fierce criticism in recent weeks over the handling of anti-Semitism within his party.

"They'll be a relief for May and the Conservative Party as a whole because they're suggestive that, despite the fact the Conservatives are in an on-and-off civil war over Brexit, the Labour Party's problems are possibly worse".

One bellwether result will come in Trafford in the northern city of Manchester.

The Tories held on to Hillingdon and Labour fell well short of the upsets some had predicted in the Conservative strongholds of Wandsworth, Westminster and Kensington.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP), which has seen its support collapse since cheerleading the 2016 vote for Brexit, was all but wiped out while the pro-European Liberal Democrats made the biggest gains. With nearly all results declared, May had avoided the widespread losses that would have weakened her authority over Conservative lawmakers ahead of tests of her plans to take Britain out of the EU customs union as it quits the bloc.
