Labour and the Conservatives dug their heels in to hold onto their west London seats in the Greater London Assembly (GLA) elections.

Honours were even as Labour and the Tories held two seats each in the west of the capital, with Tony Devenish the only new face, replacing party colleague Kit Malthouse in the West Central seat.

The results across the capital means London remains predominantly red, with nine Labour seats to five Conservative.

Labour's Dr Onkar Sahota retained his GLA seat for Ealing and Hillingdon with 86,088 votes.

He beat Tory rival Cllr Dominic Gilham, who came second with 70,155 votes ahead of UKIP's Alex Nieora with 15,832 votes.

Dr Onkar Sahota told getwestlondon : "I look forward to serving them (Ealing and Hillingdon) to the best of my ability and making sure their issues are at the forefront at GLA and in London generally.

"They can expect from me an Assembly member who is committed, who will work hard, who will walk up and down the streets of their constituency and make sure their issues become my issues."
