Voters go to the polls in local elections for London and across rest of UK

Voters are heading to the polls in what could be a difficult day for Theresa May as the Conservatives face losing ground to Labour in London.

The Tories believe they could be left with just two councils in the capital, although experts believe the party will present much stiffer competition elsewhere across the UK.

Millions of voters will go to the polls in more than 4,000 seats across England today, with some making the most of the opportunity by taking their dogs for walks at the same time.

Mrs May has already cast her ballot, voting at Central Methodist Hall in Westminster with her husband Philip earlier this morning.
