Former Cardiff South MP Alun Michael has been successful in his bid to become the first Police & Crime Commissioner for South Wales.
Mr Michael won in the second round, defeating Independent candidate Mike Baker with 72,251 votes to 60,784.
A 'detailed inquiry' will held into the Police and Crime Commissioner polls. In Gwent, only 14.3% voted - many places saw no ballots at all.
Independents take North Wales and Gwent, while the Conservative candidate wins in Dyfed Powys. Labour wins in the South Wales region.
Counting will get underway later this morning, in elections for new Police and Crime Commissioners for each of Wales' forces.
