The result of this year’s Bedford Borough mayoral election is expected in the next few hours.

Bedford went to the polls on three counts yesterday - to vote for the mayor, for borough councillors, and in some areas for the parish councils.

Unlike most parts of the country, Bedford has a directly-elected mayor who has executive powers to run the borough.

The count is expected to start in the next few minutes. We’ll be posting results as they happen - or you can follow Ben Raza on Twitter on @TheBenRaza.
