The count for the local elections are about to begin in Ealing and Hounslow and candidates are eagerly awaiting the outcome to find out if all their campaigning has paid off.

The Conservative Party held 23, the Liberal Democrat 5 and there were two independents. There is one vacant seat to be filled after Hobbayne councillor Wendy Langan resigned with less than six months before the election, meaning a by-election could not be called.
Hounslow has 60 councillors across 20 wards, 35 of them held by the Labour Party which controlled the council.
The Conservative opposition had 20 councillors, UKIP had four and there was one independent.
