Sixteen of Preston City Council’s 48 seats are up for grabs as the results from the 2 May local elections are announced on Friday (3 May).

Polls closed at 10pm on Thursday evening as the Preston public is set to elect on seat in each of the city’s wards. The count will take place at Preston Guild Hall – a talking point through much of the local elections in itself – on Friday.

The majority of Preston’s battles this year are three-way tussles between candidates representing the trio of parties currently represented at the Town Hall – the ruling Labour group, the Conservative opposition and the Liberal Democrats.
