British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative party fared better than expected in local elections in England, results on Friday showed, in her first test since losing her parliamentary majority last year.The party held on to key London councils despite a big push by the main opposition Labour party, which failed to live up to its own hype.The UK Independence Party (UKIP), which has seen its support collapse since the 2016 vote for Brexit, was all but wiped out, while the pro-European Liberal Democrat party made gains.The Conservatives appeared to have benefited from the collapse of UKIP, which was instrumental in the Brexit vote but has since lost its way.Two Labour victories stood out: Labour lawmaker Dan Jarvis also won a mayoral election in Sheffield in northern England, while the party retained control of Birmingham council in central England.
