Boris Johnson is being blamed by grassroots Tories over big losses at the local elections, with the Liberal Democrats, Labour and the Greens making gains as the results were declared. Labour hailed the 2022 local elections as a "turning point" for the party after it took from the Conservatives local authorities it has not controlled for decades. Prime Minister Johnson accepted it was a "tough night" for the Conservatives after Sir Keir Starmer's party took control of Westminster City Council for the first time since its creation in 1964 and Wandsworth Council for the first time in 44 years. Labour also won a majority on the new Cumberland Council, with the Tory leader of Carlisle Council calling on Prime Minister Johnson to resign over the result there and across the country. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
