We had a fantastic set of local election results particularly in London, with Labour winning former long-time Conservative councils, such as Wandsworth, Westminster, and Barnet.
I was out campaigning in the run up to the elections across the constituency and also in Croydon, Plaistow and the Gower to support our fantastic Labour candidates.
More locally I was pleased to see Labour in Lewisham being given a strong mandate to continue to deliver for people in Lewisham, holding all 54 seats on the council.
It was also fantastic to see Labour gains in Plaistow and St Paul's Cray in Bromley and coming close to winning in St Mary's Cray.
I want to congratulate all our candidates who ran and all those who were elected, particularly the fantastic gains we made in Plaistow and St Paul's Cray in Bromley.
As you may know we also have two Parliamentary by-elections happening in June and I have been up to Wakefield several times recently to campaign for Labour.
