TRAFFORD - prediction and result Conservative hold
This and Solihull are the two metropolitan councils that the Conservatives still hold and this year’s election is unlikely to end that.
Labour’s best hope is Broadheath which they won from the Conservatives by just over 250 votes in 2012. They came close in Davhulme West and Flixton that year but the Conservatives held on and should do again.
Timperley and Village wards are both Conservative/Lib Dem close fights and could go either way.
