Latest from Colchester election count

Today (May 3rd) polls opened across Colchester for the Borough Council local elections. 

Polling began at 7:00am and ended at 10:00pm.

Hustings events, where candidates get to answer questions from a public audience, have been held all over the Borough, with the latest being held yesterday evening for Caste Ward.

Many hundred of miles have been walked by campaigners and candidates delivering thousands of leaflets across the town, vining for your vote.

Jumbo News is at Charter Hall in Colchester to bring you the results live, with the first results being expected after mid-night.

Will we see a change in Colchester Council leadership or will it remain much the same, that is a question everyone is asking in what has been a closely battled election from all parties.
