The elections saw the Conservatives improve their majority on Worthing Borough Council by gaining another three seats.

The Tories comfortably took Goring from the Lib Dems, with Mary Lermitte taking on the role of councillor for the first time.

In Offington, newcomer Elizabeth Sparkes also coasted to victory taking 1,100 votes more than her closest rival, Mike Glennon from UKIP.

Things did not go to plan for Dawn Smith, who was standing for the Stop Durrington's Overdevelopment - Save Titnore's Trees party, in the borough's Northbrook ward.

She was arrested for disorderly behaviour after a row as results were announced.
