Episode notes

Elections analyst Lord Robert Hayward joins PoliticsHome's Eleanor Langford and Adam Payne to unpack what you should watch for as the local election results unfold. Voters headed to the polls on Thursday to cast their votes for over 6,800 council seats across England, Wales and Scotland. These elections have been tipped as both a referendum on Boris Johnson’s leadership and a key political test for Labour leader Keir Starmer.

The Rundown is presented by Eleanor Langford and Adam Payne. The editor is Laura Silver.
