A magistrate has made history by becoming the first police and crime commissioner (PCC) to be elected in England and Wales.
Angus Macpherson, a Conservative, won after a second round of voting in Wiltshire.
Counting in the other 40 police areas is taking place today.
The overall turnout in Wiltshire was just under 16%, but Mr Macpherson told Today presenter Sarah Montague that it was still a legitimate result: "It's not so much a mandate, it's more, in the Wiltshire situation, a large job interview."
"It would be much better if more people had gone out to vote and I think it's incumbent on all police commissioners, as we all take office, to actually develop this job and let people know what it is."
