Voters in Hyndburn are heading to the polls on Thursday to cast their votes in the local elections.

Eleven seats on Hyndburn council are up for grabs, with Labour and the Conservatives fielding candidates for all of the seats.

Elections will take place in Clayton-le-Moors, Huncoat, Immanuel, Milnshaw, Netherton, Overton, Peel, Rishton, Springhill, St Andrew’s and St Oswald’s wards.

Labour is defending seven seats and the Conservatives two with the remaining two previously taken by the United Kingdom Independence Party, which has no candidates standing in Hyndburn this time around.

The Greens are standing in Overton in Great Harwood, while five independent candidates will be contesting the ballots held in Huncoat, Clayton-le-Moors, Milnshaw, St Oswald’s and Peel.

Eligible voters will be able to vote for their preferred ward councillor between 7am and 10pm on Thursday, May 3.
