Amid the Labour carnage in the county council elections, there were some interesting results for the few elections taking place for directly-elected mayors on Thursday. In Doncaster, which has been blighted by politicial in-fighting and where the authority has faced damaging allegations about its failure to look after vulnerable children, the previous mayor stood down. Thursday saw the election of a mayor from the English Democrats party. Meanwhile, H'Angus The Monkey - Stuart Drummond - won a third successive election in Hartlepool. Not bad for a former football club mascot.
