With the race for Sheffield City Region's first mayoral race getting closer to the finish line, all candidates have agreed to a live debate.

The debate, set to take place on April 25 at BBC Radio Sheffield, in association with The Star, and will be hosted by Toby Foster.
It will be streamed live but readers can also get in on the action and join the candidates in the studio to put their questions to the seven short-listed candidates.
The shortlist is:
David Stewart Allen, English Democrats
Mick Bower, The Yorkshire Party
Dan Jarvis, Labour and Co-operative Party
Naveen Judah, South Yorkshire Save Our NHS
Hannah Ruth Kitching, Liberal Democrats
Robert Murphy, Green Party
Ian Geoffrey Walker, Conservative Party
Star Editor Nancy Fielder said: "It is really important that our audience engages with this process because whoever is elected will be in charge of bringing more power and money away from Westminster so we can make big decisions about planning and infrastructure for ourselves.
"This is a massive deal for the people of Sheffield and the wider region and I would urge everyone to engage in the electoral process. This debate will allow our readers to get to the heart of the key issues our city faces, and to help people decide who they want to vote for. The important thing is that everyone turns out to vote on the day."
Katrina Bunker, Editor at BBC Radio Sheffield, said: "I'm really pleased to be working with our local newspapers again for this important debate. The first time our region will have an elected mayor, a significant step in devolution. We've found that working together across the local media for events like this helps us have a bigger conversation with more impact. I hope lots of people will take up the opportunity to come along and find out more about the candidates."
Elections will take place on Thursday, May 3, the deadline to register to vote is 12noon on Tuesday, April 17.
