Turnout and LAB majority
The leader of Newcastle Borough Council has quit and blamed Independents and the Conservatives.
Failures during the general election in Newcastle-under-Lyme will be discussed later.
A report found 1,000 people were unable to vote in June and 500 had problems with postal votes.
Newcastle Borough Council's chief executive and its head of audit and elections are both suspended pending an investigation by the Association of Electoral Administrators.
Labour's Paul Farrelly narrowly won the seat - with a majority of just 30 votes over Conservative Owen Meredith.
The New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-under-Lyme has appointed a new associate director.
Zoe Waterman joins having previously directed The Kitchen Sink for the theatre in 2016. She has also worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company and Theatr Clywd, among others.
The New Vic, in Newcastle-under-Lyme, is one of the foremost producing theatres in the region and one of the few in the UK to specialise in in-the-round productions.
Playhouse Creatures, directed by Zoe Waterman, runs at the New Vic from Friday 2 until Saturday 24 February.
A North Staffordshire MP says a newspaper report alleging drunken intimidation in Parliament is "ridiculous mischief-making".
The Mail on Sunday reported Paul Farrelly, the MP for Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, "launched a foul-mouthed tirade" at fellow Labour MP James Frith.
Labour said it would be launching an investigation after it received "a number of complaints".
Mr Farrelly said the Mail on Sunday's story "seems to boil down to something about queue-pushing in Commons vote last week, and I have no idea what that's about".
A surge of young voters is "highly likely" to have caused the Conservative defeats in the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Crewe and Nantwich seats at the last general election - according to BBC research.
Analysis of data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act suggests the Conservatives may have been denied an overall majority by the hundreds of thousands of young voters who used the government's online system to join the electoral register after the election was called.
The research suggests the Conservatives might also have won the Kensington, Perth & North Perthshire, Dudley North and Canterbury seats - which were all lost by fewer than 200 votes.
