Ballots being verified as Norfolk County Council election result looms
Ballots are currently being verified at Norfolk Showground to determine the winners and losers of the county council elections.
Eighty-three seats at Norfolk County Council are up for election this week – with one postponed following the death of a candidate.
Conservatives – who have 52 seats – will be hoping to hold on to their control of the council, whilst Labour and the Liberal Democrats will be hoping to make gains on their 16 and nine seats, respectively.
For people across the Diss Express area, eyes will be focused on the seats of Diss and Roydon; Long Stratton; and Attleborough.
In Diss and Roydon, Conservative Keith Kiddie will be looking to hold his seat against Labour's Pam Reekie; The Green Party's David Reynolds; and Liberal Democrat Trevor Wenman.
In Long Stratton, Conservative Alison Thomas will be looking to see off Labour's David Vail; the Lib Dem's Jon Norton, and Shaun Button, from the Green Party.
Lastly, in Attleborough, only three candidates are standing; Labour's James Bremner; the Lib Dem's Ian Speller; and Conservative Rhodri Oliver, who will be defending his seat.
