- Credit: Neil Didsbury
Labour kept control of Norwich City Council following the third election count in as many days.
Twelve wards were contested in the City Hall elections.
And the council remains in Labour's control. They have 27 Labour councillors, the Green Party has nine and the Liberal Democrats three.
The only change was in Thorpe Hamlet, which the Greens won back after the resignation of former Green turned independent Nigel Utton.
Earlier today, Conservative Giles Orpen-Smellie is Norfolk's new police and crime commissioner.
Mr Orpen-Smellie succeeds fellow Conservative Lorne Green in the role - and becomes the third person to fill the role.
He finished well ahead of second placed Michael Rosen, with 119,994 votes to 69,552.
