Also, 145 UKIP councillors defending their seats in local elections last week were beaten, although the party did pick up one seat in Burnley. In Lincolnshire, where Paul Nuttall is expected to stand in the general election in Boston and Skegness, UKIP went from being the official opposition to having no seats at all as the Tories gained 23 seats. Moreover, in a bad night for UKIP they also lost all of their nine seats in Essex, just four years they gained 27% of the vote.
