SNP tops poll in historic Fife victory
The SNP is the biggest party in Fife for the first time following yesterday’s local elections.
The count took place today and saw the Nationalists take 29 seats to Labour’s 24 with the Tories third on 15 and the Lib Dems down to seven.
The result means there is no overall majority. The previous administration was Labour-run but their support has collapsed since 2012.
They lost ten seats in the Kingdom, once a Labour stronghold.
The talking will now begin behind the scenes in a bid to put together a new administration.
