First elected mayor for Peterborough and Cambridgeshire confirmed

Conservative James Palmer has become the first elected mayor of the combined authority of Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.

He’s won a second round vote with Liberal Democrat Rod Cantrill after neither held a majority following the first count.

Meanwhile Cambridgeshire County Council now has a majority – with The Tories seizing power with 36 of 61 possible seats.

UKIP’s bad results nationally were mirrored locally – they’ve lost all ten seats they previously held.
