Labour win overall control of Redbridge Council for the first time in history thanks to support from residents across the borough.
Labour will take control of Redbridge Council on Thursday 12th June after gaining the most votes and seats in the borough's local elections.
Labour gained nine seats, taking their number of seats to 35. The Conservatives won just 25 seats and the Liberal Democrats are down to three seats.
Redbridge Labour Group Leader, Cllr Jas Athwal, will be elected Leader of the Council at the Council's Annual Meeting on Thursday 12th June. Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Ilford North and Aldborough Ward Cllr Wes Streeting will serve as Deputy Leader of the Council.
Labour's priority will be to deliver the pledges made to residents during the election campaign. Every pledge has been costed and will be delivered during Labour's four year term.
