The Conservatives have faced a turbulent few months with Boris Johnson facing increasing questions over his premiership, but the Prime Minister is unlikely to conduct a reshuffle until June or July, according to a Government source.

In total there are 4,411 council seats being contested today, with elections in 144 out of England’s 333 councils, all seats in Scotland’s 32 local authorities, and all seats in Wales’ 22 local authorities.
