Ballot counting begins for Norfolk Police and Crime and Commissioner
Ballot counting has begun at the Norfolk Showground for the county's new Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
Polling stations closed on Thursday, and Giles Orpen-Smellie will be hopeful of replacing his fellow Conservative and current PCC Lorne Green – following a successful night for his party at yesterday's county council elections.
Former solider Orpen-Smellie will go up against; Liberal Democrat John Crofts; Labour's Michael Rosen; Martin Schmierer from the Green Party; and David Moreland, who is running as an independent.
Results are expected at some point this afternoon.
The elections were suspended from last year, due to the rising coronavirus rates.
