So we now know who will be the candidates on May 3....
Eight to watch:
Amanda Baker - Green Joe Edginton - Conservative Roger Harmer - Liberal Democrat John O'Shea - Labour Ben Rubery - Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts Stella Taylor - British Nationalist Party Alan Ware - Social Democratic Party Chris Whitehouse - UKIP
I think that makes us the ward with the widest choice - although this really is down to a two horse race. If you want to see who else is nominated, there's the full 40 ward listing here.
