By-election votes are currently being counted at Lancaster Town Hall, with the results expected around midday.

European election voting stations closed at 10pm yesterday, Thursday, with the votes being counted on Sunday.

There are by-elections in the University and Scotforth West wards following the resignation of two city councillors, and a by-election for Morecambe Town Council in the Westgate ward.

Results are coming in from England’s local elections, showing gains for UKIP across the country.

Despite its gains, the party does not yet control any local authorities.

Labour is also making gains with Tories and Lib Dems both losing councillors.
