Labour’s Steve Rotherham, whose election campaign was run by St Helens Council leader Barrie Grunewald, has won the race to become Liverpool’s first city region mayor.

Coun Grunewald was among the earlier frontrunners to stand as mayor.

Mr Rotherham’s election will mean he will not re-stand as a Labour candidate for Liverpool Walton where he served as an MP for the past seven years.
