If the latest polls are anything to go by then the Conservatives are set to lose hundreds of council seats across the country when voters head to the polls on Thursday. A Survation poll puts Labour 13 points ahead, while Ipsos suggests Labour is five points ahead of the Tories. Around 6,000 council seats are being contested including of London’s boroughs as well as a number of key marginal councils in the so-called Red Seat constituencies which swung nationally to the Tories at the last election.
