Local election results: 'Straw draw' decides council seat
The winner of a local council seat has been decided in an unusual way after two recounts failed to produce a winner.
At South Blyth, in Northumberland, the candidates drew straws after they received exactly the same number of votes.
The Lib Dem pulled the longer straw - denying the Tories overall control of the council.
