Andy Street increased his majority as he won a second term as West Midlands Mayor.

The Conservative former John Lewis managing director won 54 per cent of the vote once first and second preference votes were counted - stronger than his 50.4 per cent share four years ago.

Although the contest went to a second preference count, Labour’s Liam Byrne was unable to make up a 55,309-vote deficit from the first round, trailing Mr Street’s total vote of 314,669 with 267,626 first and second preferences.

The supplementary vote system means that as nobody secured more than 50 per cent of first choices, the vote went to a second round between the top two candidates. In that round, all of the second preferences of those who voted for the other three candidates in the first round were counted then added to the first round totals of Mr Street and Mr Byrne.
