'Super Thursday' polls close

The polls have now officially closed.

Around 45 million people across the country were eligible to vote in today's elections, and it remains to be seen whether turnout has improved or weakened on last year's - the highest since 2001.

Today's round of voting was known as 'Super Thursday' because it involved multiple elections and voting systems.

In London, people voted for the London Assembly, the Mayor, and in their local council elections.

Elsewhere, people voted for Police Commissioners, in the Scottish Parliament elections, and voted for representatives in the Welsh Assembly.

There were even two by-elections for MPs in Ogmore and Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough.

Now begins a long night of counting and verifying votes, with the first full result expected in an hour.
