The Horsham electorate has put Conservative candidate Kate Bourne at the top of the Police and Crime Commissioner results with a second round of counting to take place.

Voters went to the polls yesterday (Thursday November 15) to vote for the person who will make policing decisions for the whole of Sussex.

The full results are below, but people in the Horsham district put Ms Bourne in the top spot with Independent candidate Ian Chisnall in second.

However across Sussex, Labour candidate Godfrey Daniel came second so the contest remains between him and Ms Bourne.

No candidate got over 50 per cent of the first choice votes, the second choice votes for Ms Bourse and Mr Daniel are now being counted.

The second choice votes for these two remaining candidates will then be added to their first choice votes and a winner declared.

The result is expected at about 5pm this afternoon (Friday November 16).
