Police commissioner elections report low turnout

The first police and crime commissioner (PCC) in England and Wales has been elected in Wiltshire.

The elections face likely controversy over reported low turnouts.

Among the first dozen or so areas to confirm turnouts on Friday morning, almost all ranged from 13-20%.

The BBC's Wales correspondent Hywel Griffith said that at one polling station in Newport no votes were cast, while elsewhere there were reports of spoilt ballots.
