Jeremy Corbyn has predicted that Labour will not lose any council seats in tomorrow's local elections.
the Labour leader has dismissed analysis by academics that suggested the party is on course to lose as many as 170 council seats in tomorrow's elections.
Mr Corbyn said: 'We're not going to lose seats. We're going to gain seats where we can'.
Speaking on the BBC's Daily Politics, shadow housing minister John Healey admitted this week's local elections were 'going to be tough' for the party.
However he added the number of council seats 'always ebb and flow with the political cycle' and insisted election predictions remained 'a mug's game'.
