Labour has managed to keep its stronghold on Wakefield Council during an election night of very few surprises.
Council leader Peter Box managed to regain his seat in the Altofts and Whitwood ward.
Coun box said: "I am always a very nervous candidate. We have a very good majority so I'm really pleased.
"I am obviously sad that we lost one seat in Wakefield Rural but we have gained a seat in Ossett so our majority remains the same.
"I think that is a reflection of what we have tried to do over the last few years, continuing to invest in the district and its people and trying to provide frontline services. We will continue to do that over the next few years.
And labour also made a gain by winning a seat in Ossett,
Newly elected Ossett councillor Lynne Masterman dedictaed her victory to her agent Peter Savage who died earlier this week.
She said: "I feel fantastic to have gained the seat and I am dedicating it to Peter Savage.
"Peter was my agent and he was the driving force behind the campaign from day one."
Ms Masterman decided to stand after her son Luke was diagnosed with illness.
She said: "I just saw that our NHS, which had done so much to help him, was being sold off piecemeal and I wanted to do something about it. I wanted to stand up and not stand by.":
But the Conservatives did mange to prise one seat from Labour by winning seat in the rural ward. Cynthia Binns took the victory after Labour councillor Lawrence Fitzpatrick retired.
Cynthia Binns said: "I feel absolutely fantastic to have won the seat, it's brilliant.
"I think it is just a result of being out there, working hard and talking to people.
"We have lots of things going on at the moment. I just want to look at the issues in the area and hope to make things better for people living there.
The Tories also managed to hang onto a seat in the Wakefield South with Richard Hunt taking victory. he now replaces long serving conservative councillor David Hopkins who also retired.
One third of seats, 21, were up for election this year.
Labour won 19 of the seats and the Conservatives won two.
