THE final list of candidates for next month’s local election has been released.

Local elections will take place in Hartlepool on Thursday 22 May to elect borough councillors - the same day as elections for Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).

In the elections, one councillor will be elected to each of the 11 wards in Hartlepool and will serve for a term of four years.

A total of 49 candidates are battling for a seat on the council across the wards.

Labour and Conservative have a representative in each of the 11 wards, while the Putting Hartlepool First group have put 10 candidates up for election having opted not to contest the Manor House seat.

UKIP has nine candidates, five people have been put up by the Liberal Democrats and there are three independent candidates with no affiliation to any party.

Details of the polling stations around the town will be released at a later date.
