LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has had some difficult results overnight in local elections, the party's co-chairman Oliver Dowden said on Friday.

"I, of course, accept that these are challenging times and there have been some difficult results. However, I do not accept that Labour have the momentum to form the next government," Dowden told Sky News.
