There's been a mixed turnout to decide the new mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, with some residents choosing to stay away from the polls.

There was a fairly strong showing in Cambridge where more than 40% of people cast a vote, but the figure was far lower in Peterborough.

Percentage turnout for mayoral vote

  • South Cambs: 42.4%
  • Cambridge City: 42.2%
  • East Cambs: 34.02%
  • Huntingdonshire: 32.8%
  • Fenland: 26.9%
  • Peterborough: 24.7%

The winner won't be revealed until much later on Friday, with an announcement due at around 5pm.

The 'metro mayor' will head up a new devolved authority with greater power over transport, housing and investment.
