Roma Mills was returned as councillor for St Albans North and Dreda Gordon claimed The Colneys in a tightly fought race. Both seats were previously held by Liberal Democrats.
Across the county, however, it was the Conservatives who suffered most, losing 9 seats.
Newly elected Councillor Gordon said she was “absolutely delighted” with her win. “It was one of our target seats so we knew there was a possibility of winning it but there is still quite a lot of variables, for example when UKIP joined the race.
“Labour have held The Colneys before so we knew it was doable but we knew there was a lot of work to do.”
She added: “Labour will certainly be more powerful opposition then we have been before and I think that is healthy for democracy.”
Your Labour councillors are already working for local residents, arguing for a fairer deal from the Conservative controlled council.
