We are live once again with more crucial local election results from across the Liverpool City Region.

Yesterday was filled with drama as Joanne Anderson was confirmed as the new Mayor of Liverpool, following a tense second round run off with independent candidate Stephen Yip.

She has made history as the first black woman to be elected as leader of a major UK city.

We also saw council votes across our city region, with shocks and surprises and plenty of action.

Today attention turns to two more key positions.

The Liverpool City Region will be voting to elect a Metro Mayor for only the second time, since the position was created in 2017.

Labour's Steve Rotheram will be hoping to secure that role for a second term - but will he have it all his own way and could there be another second round of voting in store?

After this we will have the results of the Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner election, where former Labour MP Jane Kennedy is stepping down after holding the position since its inception in 2012.

We will be live from the Wavertree Tennis Centre in Liverpool for all the action as it happens.
