UPDATE: Local council elections 2010: What will higher turnout mean for local elections?

Early results seem to be conforming to Andy’s expectation of local council gains for Labour. The BBC reports that Enfield has been confirmed as a Labour gain from the Conservatives and Coventry and Doncaster as Labour gains from no overall control. Andy called Coventry for Labour in his blog on councils most likely to change control. The other two gains are suprises – perhaps suggesting a bigger swing.
