Doncaster mayoral elections

It's been described as a poisoned chalice - one of the toughest jobs in politics. But on Thursday, ten candidates will compete to become the mayor of Doncaster.

The Council has been heavily criticised in the past with central government even stepping in to control children's services.

But all of the candidates are promising a break with the past, as our Political Correspondent Paul Brand found out at Doncaster Racecourse, where one candidate will be crowned winner.

You can read the candidates' statements of intent here.
