The nations also took the BBC London centric segment.
Surely because the London picture is a particularly big story in this election.
Hardly. I don't think the London results are that big a deal this year. I think the bigger stories are in the regions, such as Plymouth, where Labour retakes a council they lost in 2016, and in Manchester, where Labour retook Trafford. Also, a bigger story is that UKIP support has, unsurprisingly, completely collapsed, and they lost over 120 councillors this time round. I would also say that the Liberal Democrats gaining 4 councils and 76 councillors is a bigger story too.
