Voters flowed into polling stations in Fylde and Wyre during a pivotal day for the country’s two major political parties.
Both David Cameron and Ed Miliband have made personal visits to the region over the last week in the hope of securing Lancashire County Council for either the former’s Conservative party or the latter’s Labour group. Mr Miliband, leader of the opposition, visited Cleveleys on Monday to meet the electorate. Eight county councillor seats were contested in Wyre as well as three borough councillors seats. Only six county council seats were available in Fylde, but they were contested by 30 candidates from across the borough. Results are expected after noon today.
