BOROUGH voters will also have the chance to vote on who is to be the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner on Thursday.

In the West Midlands force area there are four candidates for the £100,000-a-year job.

Incumbent PCC David Jamieson is the Labour Party candidate.

The former transport minister in Tony Blair’s government and Solihull councillor assumed the role when he won the by-election in August 2014 which was held after the death of previously elected Bob Jones




Les Jones is the Conservative party candidate – he finished second to Mr Jamieson in the previous by-election.

Pete Durnell, chairman of UKIP’s Sandwell branch, is his party’s candidate for the election while Andy Flynn from Birmingham is an independent candidate.


The Green Party and Liberal Democrats do not have candidates standing for what is the biggest Police and Crime Commissioner role in the country.
