David Jamieson has been re-elected West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.

The Labour candidate retained his seat with a total of 306,578 votes. The turnout was 30.03%.

The count at Birmingham's International Convention Centre went to a second round, with Mr Jamieson and Conservative Les Jones going head to head. Mr Jones got 176,922 votes.

Mr Jamieson, a former Labour transport minister, was first elected in 2014, after the death of the previous PCC.

That election, in which he also beat Mr Jones, followed the sudden death of Labour's Bob Jones, who had been in the post since it was created in 2012.
