WELCOME to our live coverage of the Worcester City Council elections.

Below, and on our homepage, you will find a panel of real-time comments from WN staff and readers, posted as the evening progresses.

You can add your own thoughts at any time by typing in to the comment box or tweeting using the hashtag #WNelections.

We're now at the Guildhall for the count and as the results are announced we’ll be updating this page with the winners.
