The campaigning is over. The voting is over. All is left is the count.

And that has started within the last hour.

Good morning from York Racecourse as we begin our live coverage of the City of York Council election count 2023.

This time, the count has moved from its old home at the Energise sports centre in Acomb and is in the Knavesmire Stand of York Racecourse.

The count is on the ground floor while the press are gathered on a mezzanine level above.
