Voters go to the polls

THE LEADER of Erewash Borough Council is one of the candidates in a by-election today (Thursday) for a seat on Derbyshire County Council.

Conservative Cllr Chris Corbett, Labour’s Cheryl Pidgeon and Liberal Democrat Fiona Aanonson are battling out for the Sawley seat, left vacant following the death of long-standing independent councillor Bill Camm earlier this year.

Polling stations were due to open at 7am and close at 10pm with the count being held this evening.
