I am having some difficult with the candidate numbers given above.
Worcestershire County Council has 57 seats, so there cannot be 58 Conservative candidates.
It appears that the candidate numbers reported above for Redditch are actually the numbers for the borough council elections. There are 8 county seats in Redditch in 4 divisions and the candidate numbers are 8 Con, 8 Lab, 8 Lib Dem, 8 Green and 2 Independent.
I can only 5 Independent Health Concern candidates in Wyre Forest - with Chaddesley and St. George and St. Oswald missing as well as the others reported above. Furthermore the IHC candidate for St. Mary's has withdrawn.
So I make the final numbers - 250 candidates Con 57 Lab 56 Lib Dem 53 Green 45 Independent 19 Independent Health Concern 5 Reform UK 7 OMLRP 3 TUSC 3 SDP 1 Women's Equality Party 1
