Voters in Hartlepool have decided to scrap the town's elected mayor after 10 years.
Most people have voted to replace the mayor with a traditional system of council committees, which supporters say will save thousands of pounds a year.
The result means Stuart Drummond, the Hartlepool mayor who shot to fame in 2002 after winning the position as an independent candidate, will be replaced by a committee system next year.
