Stories of the night

For those of you waking up, this is how the overnight election results have panned out in the West Midlands.

Votes being counted in Dudley

One of the big results saw the Conservative Party seize overall control of Walsall Council, taking two seats off Labour.

However, the party couldn't make enough gains to take Dudley Borough Council as it tied with Labour for the number of seats, although, with a Tory mayor, it has a casting vote when it comes to deciding later this month who'll lead the authority.

Elsewhere, the Tories lost their majority in Worcester but held on to North Warwickshire, Rugby and Tamworth.

Labour, meanwhile, held on to Coventry, Sandwell, Telford and Wrekin and Wolverhampton.

We're still waiting for the final result from Stoke-on-Trent.

Residents told to put their bins out earlier

BBC News

Residents in Tamworth and Lichfield are being told they'll have to get up even earlier to put their bins out on their collection day.

The councils for both areas, which have a joint waste service, says they want bins out by 06:30 from 26 February, rather than 07:00.

The authorities say the change is so collections can start earlier to avoid rush hour, and finish in the light by 15:30 for safety.

But, before people go changing their alarm clocks, they do say residents can still put them out the night before.
