James Vincent is still at his desk in Broadcasting Centre in Leeds in the final furlong of a long general election night.

He can still manage a weary smile though, as he finishes his reports before heading for a sleep.

He's been in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster overnight covering events for Look North.

His shift has included the news of the resignation of Doncaster North MP Ed Miliband from the Labour Party leadership and Sheffield Hallam's Nick Clegg as Liberal Democrat head.

Constituency profile

One of the five constituencies covering one of Britain's biggest cities, Sheffield Heeley stretches in a wedge shape from the centre, southwards, to the edge of the city. It is bordered on its western side by the River Sheaf - from which Sheffield takes its name.

It is a largely residential and socially diverse area. Fewer people here own their own homes compared with the average for England and Wales and nearly one in three lives in social housing. Nearly 30% of adults say they have no qualifications, according to the ONS 2011 Census.

After many years of Conservative control, the seat switched between Labour and the Tories in the 1960s and 1970s. It has been Labour since 1974 and held by Meg Munn, who is standing down this year, since 2001. In 2010, her majority was 5,800 and vote share 43%. The Lib Dems had 28% and the Conservatives 17%.
