    With covid necessitating more precautions at counts the results of Thursdays elections have been dribbling in over the past 36 hours

    In Suffolk the Conservatives will continue to dominate the County Council. Whilst we had strong performances in Stour Valley and Belstead Brook and achieved our highest vote for some time in the Babergh by-election in Great Cornard the night was to be honest pretty disappointing.
