Voting has begun in elections being held across South Yorkshire.

Polling stations opened their doors at 07:00 BST and will close at 22:00.

All-out council elections are being held in Sheffield and Rotherham, while a third of council seats are up for grabs in Barnsley.

Votes are also being cast for the region's next Police and Crime Commissioner and in the Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough parliamentary by-election.

The seat has been vacant since the death of sitting MP Harry Harpham in February.

Across England, elections are taking place for more than 120 councils and the London Assembly, and to elect mayors in Bristol, Liverpool, London and Salford.
