Lancashire has voted in a new Police and Crime Commissioner as part of the May 6 local elections.

The election was a delayed running of the PCC vote that had been expected to take place in 2020 but was delayed due to coronavirus.

It was the third PCC election in the county's history, having been held by Labour’s Clive Grunshaw since it was created in 2012. He secured 44 percent of the vote to the then Conservative candidate’s 32 percent at the last election in 2016.

This year, Mr Grunshaw was challenged by the Conservative's Andrew Snowden, the Liberal Democrats' Neil Darby, and Reform UK's James Barker.

The public were asked to rank their candidates in preference of who they wanted to be in the role.

To win, the successful candidate has to secure 50% of the vote.

If no candidate gains 50% of the vote in the first round, second preferences are then counted from the candidate in last place.

This will continue until a majority is reached.

Voting opened at 7am on Thursday, May 6 with the last votes cast at 10pm on the same day.

Votes are set to be counted on Monday morning with a final declaration around 2pm.
