Liberal Democrats in Birmingham are gathering evidence this weekend as part of a legal challenge following a row over postal voting in the local elections (click herefor the LGCnet Elections 2004 mini-site).

They claim they are concerned by the scale of applications for postal votes and an incident in which Labour activists in one ward were caught with hundreds of ballot papers.

Meanwhile, in Bradford, Labour and the Lib Dems are considering a joint legal action amid allegations that blank ballot papers were collected from households in the Great Horton ward.

The Conservatives won one of the three seats but have denied any irregularities, reports The Sunday Times.
