PCC and Corby polls close

PCC and Corby polls close
Elections for the UK’s first ever police and crime commissioners have taken place today.

David Cameron urged the public to use the “historic opportunity” to choose the strategic direction of 41 police forces across England and Wales. 

In an interview with Central Lobby today, Police Federation chairman Paul McKeever pledged that officers would help the new commissioners as much as they could, and urged the PCCs to listen to those “who do understand the service and who understand policing”.

As well as the PCC elections, voters in Corby elected a new MP today, with the marginal constituency widely expected to return to the Labour party.

The by-election was triggered after Louise Mensch decided to quit the House of Commons to move to the US with her family.

There were also by-elections today in the safe Labour constituencies of Manchester Central and Cardiff South.

The results for the PCC and Corby elections aren't expected until tomorrow but the Manchester Central and Cardiff elections could be announced over-night.
