It promises to be another interesting race in Sheffield following big changes at the last locals which saw the Labour leader unseated and the council pushed to no overall control.

This past year saw the first Labour and Green coalition and from May the council will operate under a modern committee system which aims to give all councillors more say in decisions.

Labour, Green, Liberal Democrat and Conservative parties have representatives in all of the 28 wards.
