"We've gained seats in every council that had elections on Thursday, reflecting our gains of seats and councils across the UK."

The Lib Dem gains were:

Alaric Rose, Kidlington West, Cherwell D.C. (from the Conservatives);

Roz Smith, Quarry & Risinghurst, Oxford C.C. (from Labour);

Carl Rylett, Eynsham & Cassington, West Oxon D.C. (from the Conservatives);

Dave Jackson, The Bartons,  West Oxon D.C. (from the Conservatives);

Jake Acock, Ascott & Shipton,  West Oxon D.C. (from the Conservatives).

The Lib Dems also saw their share of the vote increase in the wards within the Oxford West & Abingdon constituency, from 29% in 2016 to 38% this time.
