This live event has finished
- Results due for Crawley Borough, Adur District and Worthing Borough Councils.
- Also expecting Lancing Parish Council and Sompting Parish Council results
- Labour retain control of Hastings Borough Council
So that's it for this live 2014 local election coverage. It's been an exciting day with Labour regaining control of Crawley Borough Council picking up an extra councillor in Hastings.
In Adur and Worthing the Tory predictably stayed in control on the council.
And as for UKIP, they didn't pick up many seats but they surged ahead of many other parties to finish a strong second in many wards.
So all this makes for an interesting start to the final 12 months before next years general election.
A full analysis and break down of results will be featured in tomorrow's Argus
So that's all the wards for Adur and Worthing District Council, it remains in Conservative control but Ukip have picked up some momentum going into next year with some strong second place finishes and a few wins
Ukip pick up 2 more seats in Mash Barn ward at Adur District Council
Worthing, Salvington: Lib 173, Green 181, UKIP 988, Lab 236, Con 1011

There's a large Labour contingent gathered around the West Field count, nerves are rising as results edge closer
Strong rumour going around that Labour have the lead in two of their four target seats
