Unless the UK leaves the EU beforehand, elections for the European Parliament take place on Thursday 23 May 2019.
We are currently in political 'purdah' for the local elections. This election period will continue beyond the local elections on May 2nd, until the European elections have taken place.
We are allowed to report the results of the local elections, and interview winners and other candidates, keeping it factual. We will be doing this during Drive on Friday 3 May, and at no other time.
However the other restrictions remain in force until the European elections have either taken place or are formally cancelled.
Please do not do any 'political coverage' on air.
Clive and team will be reporting the results of the local elections during 'Drive' on Friday 3rd May, but keeping strictly within the rules.
