Labour has gained overall control of Queen’s Park.

The Lib Dems lost their sole seat in the ward which had been held by Simon Green.

The ward’s current Labour councillor James Denselow is joined by newbie Eleanor Southwood and former Queen’s Park councillor Neil Nerva.

Simon Green had the worst attendance record in the council with him showing up at just 17 per cent of meetings in the last six months.
