Prestonians are going to the polls to decide another raft of councillors to represent them in wards across the city.

The Labour group currently holds a majority at the Town Hall and we’ll have the run down as Preston City Council announce the results.

Polling stations are open until 10pm on Thursday 5 May and you can also vote for the Police and Crime Commissioner at the same time as a local councillor, if your ward is holding local elections.

18 wards are up for election and you can follow the results as they happen with our live updates below.
