Voting in the local elections today

Polling stations will open for us this morning as we decide on the make-up of our county councils. The majority in our region are taking part. Voters have until 10pm to cast their votes, with the results due from early tomorrow morning.


Who can halt tide of blue?

Polling stations in the local council elections have closed. Our Political Correspondent Phil Hornby asks if anyone can make an impression on the Conservative map of blue in our region.
