Local elections 2022: Watch The Scotsman 'Election Live' broadcast here

Our political team will host a one-hour livestream from noon on Friday to bring you the latest from the local council elections being held across Scotland, England and Wales.

Hosted by Westminster correspondent Alex Brown, in conversation with political correspondents Conor Matchett and Hannah Brown, the livestream will debate the key election issues and look into a crystal ball to predict the results as the SNP seek to strengthen their stranglehold and Scottish Labour press for second place.

Hear the latest from the live counts in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, and find out the early results as votes are tallied across Scotland.
