BY-ELECTIONS will be held to fill three positions on Penketh Parish Council.

Three vacancies arose after parish councillor Terry Webb resigned from his position in the East ward, while parish councillors George Warburton and Sam Baxter resigned from their posts in the West ward.

By-elections for the two areas will take place on April 26 after Warrington Borough Council received election requests before last Thursday's 5pm deadline.

The 'statement of persons nominated' is due to be published on March 29.
