THE Tories were humiliated as they lost more than 1,300 seats at local elections - the party's worst result for 24 years.

Conservatives lost control of 44 councils as fuming Brits abandoned them - but Labour also lost seats in a terrible result for Jeremy Corbyn's party.

Theresa May was braced for big losses with pollsters predicting 800 of the party's councillors would be kicked out, but the actual result turned out to be even worse than the direst predictions.

It was the Tories' worst local election showing since the low point under John Major when they lost more than 2,000 seats in 1995.
