Local elections 2021 RESULTS LIVE – Polls open until 10pm across UK as London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s lead narrows

WELCOME to The Sun’s Election 2021 live blog, where you’ll find all the latest news, polling and updates on the largest local vote in decades.

Approximately 48 million people will be able to cast a vote for about 4,650 positions of power today – a much larger number than usual after much of the voting was delayed last year due to covid.

Polls close at 10pm this evening and a standard election would see votes counted overnight and declared the following day.

But this year some counts won’t take place until Friday or even Saturday this year with coronavirus measures expected to slow the process down.

Some polling centres are being used for vaccinations or cannot facilitate social distancing.

With tens of millions placing their votes today, we’ll bring you everything you need to know to keep up to date.
