British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party avoided a wipeout in London local elections and eked out gains in Brexit-supporting regions elsewhere, results Friday showed, denting the opposition Labour Party's hopes of a big win.May's party kept control of Wandsworth council – a low-tax Conservative stronghold since the time of late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher that had been one of Labour's main targets.May is currently negotiating an exit from the EU that 60 percent of the capital rejected at the 2016 Brexit referendum.Results elsewhere in London's 32 boroughs showed only a small swing to Labour, unlikely to give May a serious headache.
