Mark Drakeford has cast his vote in the local council elections.

The First Minister entered St Catherine’s Hall in King’s Road, Pontcanna, Cardiff, with his wife, Claire, at 9am on Thursday.

Pontcanna is an area within Mr Drakeford’s Cardiff West constituency.

The Welsh Labour leader attended the polling station wearing a grey suit and red tie and greeted voters with a wave.

All polling stations have now opened for the 2022 local elections, with council seats in Wales, Scotland, London and many parts of England up for grabs, and Northern Ireland electing its new Assembly.

Millions of voters are expected to cast ballots to select the local representatives they want to run services in their area.

In Wales all 22 councils are also holding elections.

Polls close at 10pm, and most counts in the country will take place on Friday, with the first batch of results likely to be announced in the early evening.
