Doncaster’s mayoral contest is set to go down to the wire between Peter Davies and Ros Jones with a full recount underway.

No official announcements have yet been made on numbers of votes cast, but the number of first choice preference votes between the two is said to be “tiny.”

Sources at the count at Doncaster Racecourse have suggested there could be less than 150 votes between the pair on the first preference votes.

Votes for all the other eight candidates are now being recounted following discrepancies between counters.
