Bristol

Gazebo used as Bristol polling station

Election staff had to set up a gazebo after they turned up to open a Bristol polling station without the right keys.

A portable cabin had been hired to allow people in the St George area of the city to take part in the ballot over whether to have an elected mayor.

The gazebo was set up alongside the cabin before the lock on the door was forced.

Polling stations closed at 22:00 BST and votes are due to be counted on Friday morning.
