Candidates from the Conservatives, Labour, UKIP, Liberal Democrats and Green parties are standing in every ward across the Waveney area.

Counting in Suffolk will take place on the day after the elections instead of overnight.

The Conservatives won 39 of the 75 seats available on the authority in 2013 and are hoping to increase their majority this year after falling into a minority administration after two by-election losses recently.
