Norfolk goes to the polls today to pick new county and city councillors, along with a new police and crime commissioner.

The county council results won't be known until Friday evening, with the city council and police and crime commissioner counts not until Saturday.

To kill time, while you wait for all the results of local elections and the big national stories, including the Hartlepool by-election result, we've put together this bingo board for you to play.

Aim for a full-house by the end of Saturday night and keep checking in with this website for all the results and analysis. 

1. A picture of a dog by a polling station is posted on social media, our website or is shown on the television

3. A candidate in the election has a mildly amusing name

8. The increase in postal votes is mentioned
