York election 2023: The state of the parties

As things stand

So it all comes down to this.

With one ward, Holgate, left to declare, Labour have 21 seats, the Lib Dems 19, the Conservatives three and one independent.

Labour won all three Holgate seats in 2019 and it’s a bit of a stronghold so we’re expecting them to retake all three.

That would give them 24 seats – and a majority of one.
