Leeds City Council's 2012 election votes were counted on Friday. The results saw Labour increase their majority on the Council by 8, by taking seats including Headingley, Rothwell, Hyde Park and Woodhouse and Burmantofts and Richmond Hill.
Rachel visited key campaigners across the city through the course of the election, and was delighted with the election of so many new Labour Councillors.
In Leeds West, Alison Lowe was returned as the Councillor for Armley with 2,686 votes, Caroline Gruen was elected for the first time as Councillor for Bramley with 2,343 votes, and Lucinda Yeadon was returned as Kirkstall's Councillor with 3,006 votes. In Farnley and Wortley, Labour candidate David Dresser's campaign did not unfortunately pay off.
