Please note we would have been happier reporting from the count centre about half a mile away but Wirral Council were not happy with the press being there.

  1. This was the first election count I reported on from the footpath outside the building where the count was being held.

    Video of my interviews with various people about the election will be published later.

  2. Wonder how many of the 1,761 knew the conduct of the previous incumbent.

    Would be surprised if it’s more than a dozen.

    • I’ve no idea, I don’t live in Claughton!

      But people change and some people will forgive politicians nearly anything (except maybe cheating in an election).

    • Here’s a Biffa bin lorry backing up to the Wirral Tennis and Sports Centre to collect the rubbish a few hours before the Claughton result was declared.
