    The big news first thing on Friday is that Labour's Ros Jones is Doncaster's mayor again.

    Ros Jones

    She secured 32,631 50.9% of all the first preference votes cast in the borough.

    That means she is re-elected as the mayor.

    More on this result and reaction to follow.

  4. Good morning

    Welcome to Friday!

    We'll be bringing you the latest news, sport, travel and weather updates from across North, South and West Yorkshire through the day.

    We'll be getting results for the Doncaster and North Yorkshire County Council local elections later today.

    North Yorkshire begin counting this morning while Doncaster will commence counting after lunch.

    'Why the delay in Doncaster?' I hear you ask.

    That's because they have been counting overnight for their directly-elected mayor.

    And there is more on that in a moment.
