Mr Seccombe was elected ahead of Labour candidate Julie Jackson in virtue of voters’ second preferences.

Liberal Democrat candidate Nicola Davies, UKIP candidate Rob Harris, and independent candidates Ben Twomey and David Whitehouse were knocked out of the election after voters’ first preferences failed to produce an overall winner.

The turnout across Warwickshire was 26.73 per cent, with 111,900 total votes cast.

Mr Seccombe will perform the role for the next four years.
