How long does it take to count some votes?

I’m just curious… Some 88 hours have passed since the polls closed for the local elections, yet the BBC graphic still says there are two councils yet to declare their results.

Assuming it’s not simply because Auntie can’t be arsed to update, can I ask which two councils have decided to leave their candidates on tenterhooks over an entire Bank Holiday week-end?

One is Warwick, where they were going to do a computer count but the computers have completely broken down, so they are going to have to do a manual one, and the RO needed to hire some counters

The other is Breckland
