Who is standing for Mayor of West Yorkshire

Standing for West Yorkshire Mayor are Tracy Brabin (Labour Party), Bob Buxton (Yorkshire Party), Andrew Cooper (Green Party), Arnold Craven (Conservative Party), Stewart Golton (Liberal Democracts) and Jonathan Tilt (Independent).

Mayoral counting will get underway at 11am tomorrow (Saturday, May 4).

Voting gets underway

Yorkshire Evening Post photographer Steve Riding and Local Democracy Reporter Don Mort will be at the John Charles Centre for Sport in Middleton from 10am.

They will be right across the reaction as the votes come in.

Ahead of yesterday’s vote, each party issued statements laying out their agendas.

Breakdown of seats available

A third of all seats on the council, or 33, are up for grabs in this election out of the 99 which make up the full council. Leeds City Council, before the vote, has a majority of the seats on the council and makes up the administration, with 61 seats.

Counting now underway

Counting has been underway for the last hour at the John Charles Centre for Sport.

What is happening elsewhere

It’s looking like being a chastening day for the Conservatives nationwide.

The party has lost its seat in the Blackpool South by-election and Labour has also won control of councils in Redditch, Thurrock, Hartlepool and Rushmoor in Hampshire.

The Tories have lost 100 councillors so far, with further results - including Leeds City Council - set to come throughout the day.

First resulted expected

Our reporter at the count has said that the first result is expected to be announced at 12.45pm.
