A by-election takes place today in Cowley.

Residents can vote for six candidates in the poll, triggered by the resignation of Labour councillor Helen O’Hara for personal reasons. Those contesting the seat are David Henwood (Lab), Hazel Dawe (Green), Katharine Harborne (Con), Ian McDonald (UKIP), Artwell (Ind) and Prakash Sharma (Lib Dem).

Voters can cast their ballots at Florence Park Community Centre, in Cornwallis Road, or St James Church Centre, in Beauchamp Lane, from 7am to 10pm.
