tight final round run-off
Labour have scored another surprise result, this time in the mayoral contest for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. James Palmer had won the inaugural contest in 2017 with a fairly easy run-off against the Lib Dem candidate. This time Palmer again won the first round, but was defeated on second preference votes in the run-off against the Labour candidate.
UKIP, the Greens, English Democrats did not contest this time, nor did independents.
