The Tories have claimed first blood in the police and crime commissioner elections with magistrate Angus Macpherson taking the post in Wiltshire.

In the second round of voting, Mr Macpherson won 35,319 votes ahead of Labour's Clare Moody, who obtained 21,157 votes.

Mr Macpherson, who has served as a councillor, won the first round of voting with 28,558 votes but it was not enough to secure selection and the count went to a second round.

Turnout across Wiltshire was low. Only 15.8% of the electorate made it out to vote. In Trowbridge, turn out was as low as 10.95% according to unofficial counting, while in Devizes it was 10.41%.
