So a tory hold. The analysis here is quite simple, Lab vote remained static biut Tories gained from the UKIP collapse and basically saw a straight swap over.

Across Walsall we saw tory gains based on the same dynamism but especially in the North

So with the to indy’s never supporting Lab this will result in Tory control for a year but realty is in Walsall little will changes as cuts still needed and Lab in previous admin set out a three year budget so little scope for change. Hence why Tory leaflets lets say were short on actual pledges and realty states little will or can be done.
