WEST Sussex residents are voting today in council elections.

The main political parties are battling it out across the county with the Tories currently in control of Arun, Worthing, Horsham, Chichester and Mid Sussex councils.

Voters are also being asked in the UK referendum whether to adopt the alternative vote (AV) for Central Government elections.

The polls are open until 10pm tonight.

Much of the counting will take place tomorrow.

The WSG website will carry the results as they are announced.
