Thames Valley PCC election goes to second round

Two candidates will go head-to-head after none of the six standing in the Thames Valley police and crime commissioner election secured more than 50 per cent of the votes.

Voter turnout in Thames Valley was 13.3 per cent with 226,512 people going to the polls. For turnout figures for each local authority click here.
