In a remarkable turn of events, there have been two draws in results in the Local Council elections.

Northumberland County Council saw Conservative and Liberal Democrats ties, which were decided by drawing lots of straws – Lib Dems won.

Rochdale Borough Council also saw a tie in votes; unfortunately there were no straws available, so candidates are required to play Rock, Paper, Scissors; the winner out of a best of three will secure the Council for their party.

The match is expected to start around 19:00.
