Local Elections Postponed For A Year Due To The Coronavirus Outbreak
The government has announced that May's local and mayoral elections in England will be postponed for a year due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It comes after the Electoral Commission said on Thursday the polls should be delayed until the autumn to "mitigate" the impact of the virus.
The polling watchdog had said there were "growing risks" to the delivery of the polls, due on 7 May.
