Police and Crime Commissioner elections: where the Lib Dems are standing

Although the Liberal Democrats have been warming to fighting the Police and Crime Commissioner elections, estimates as to how many Liberal Democrat candidates there will be in the November contests vary hugely.

So here’s a first attempt from me to track the answer comprehensively, based primarily on the adverts which have so far appeared inviting people to apply for the selection in particular contests. As a result, the list will (so far) miss out some areas where the party has 100% decided to contest the election but an advert has not yet appeared. If you know of any others where the firm decision has been made, by all means let me know and I’ll update the list accordingly.
