Two women have made history by being Rochdale 's first mother and daughter duo to be elected as councillors. Labour councillors Carol Wardle, 74, and daughter Beverley 'Bev' Place, 47, were both elected to their wards in Rochdale last week.

Mum Carol was re-elected in Hopwood Hall, a ward she has represented since 2002, while Bev was newly elected in North Heywood.

It's not the first time the pair have worked together: between 2014 and 2015, Carol was Mayor of Rochdale and chose none other than her daughter, Bev, as her Mayoress.
