KIRKLEES -  prediction and result No Overall Control

In Kirklees, which includes the town of Huddersfield, Labour just needs two more seats to take control.  They have a good chance of taking Golcar from the Lib Dems but beyond this is looks difficult. 

Denby Dale is on a knife edge with the Conservatives just winning in 2011 and Labour winning by 100 votes in 2012 and this ward will decide control.  

The Conservatives should win Lindley from the Lib Dems, they won Colne Valley from them in 2011, only just ahead of Labour but then the Lib Dems won easily in 2012, and Kirkburton is a Conservative/Green marginal  .
