Police and crime commissioner elections 'failed voters'

The elections for police and crime commissioners "failed both candidates and voters alike", a report by the Electoral Reform Society has said.

The polls took place in 41 police force areas in England and Wales, and had a turnout of just 15%, a peacetime low.

The Electoral Reform Society said a poll it commissioned showed almost 90% of people still do not know who their elected representative is, as Graham Satchell reports.
