Fantastic! A victory for independence, impartiality and ability to represent the whole community.
Newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner for Avon and Somerset Sue Mountstevens brings a perspective and approach to the role that we really need. Second time today I've voted for an election winner!

Very good, gracious speech from the new Mayor George Ferguson here and I agree particularly strongly when he said this,
"I want to use that mandate to go and ask the prime minister and the government in general for more powers for Bristol and for more resources. I think we deserve it.
"We have delivered what they wanted, now they have got to deliver what we want."
