More than 80 candidates have put their names forward in the latest round of local government elections, with voters set to cast their ballots on Thursday, May 6.

Local elections were due to take place in 2020 but were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There will also be double elections in two wards in South Tyneside in 2021.

These are to fill extra vacancies in the Horsley Hill and Monkton wards following the departure of long-serving Labour councillors Iain Malcolm and Alan Kerr respectively.

The council’s ruling Labour group is standing against contenders from the Conservative Party, Green Party Reform UK, Social Democratic Party and several independents.

A number of familiar faces, including former councillors who lost their seats or stepped down at the 2019 local elections, are also standing again.

Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on May 6 for those not voting by post.

Voters will also have the chance to have their say on who should be the Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner.

Before going to your polling station, it is worth checking your polling card as the polling station may be in a different location than usual.
