The party lost eight seats, reducing the total number of Labour councillors in Sheffield to less than half of available seats.

The Green Party gained the most seats from Labour, picking up five. The Liberal Democrats also took three seats.

Additionally, the Conservative Party gained their first seat in Sheffield for 20 years, in the Stocksbridge and Deepcar ward.

Bob Johnson, the Leader of Sheffield City Council, was a huge casualty for the party having been ousted from his seat in the Hillsborough ward.

The Labour leader had only been in position since December following previous leader Julie Dore standing down.

The Green Party took the seat by a 334 majority.
