Labour candidates swept to victory across Doncaster on Thursday 3 May, gaining eight wards lost in 2008. On a day that was a disaster for the Tories, Liberal Democrats and the fringe parties, Labour won 17 of Doncaster's 21 wards.
In Don Valley, Labour's Phil Cole ousted an Independent to gain Edlington Warmsworth & Conisbrough. Chris Mills was re-elected for Conisbrough & Denaby; Richard Cooper-Holmes for Rossington, and Pat Haith won Hatfield ward in a five way battle.
