Election 2016: It's not over till it's over
Duncan Enright's been talking about the moment he thought it was all over... it is now. But in an unexpectedly good way for him.
It was my fault really. I think I jumped the gun in announcing my defeat because there was a pile of votes which were all for me with the Conservative one on top.
'Missing votes' proves story of the night
It's well worth recapping the story of Labour candidate Duncan Enright in West Oxfordshire.
He thought he had been defeated by Conservative Suzanne Bartington in Witney East, tweeting: "thanks for the opportunity to serve".
But incredibly a bundle of 70 votes was discovered and he won enough of them to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
He told his followers: "Actually I won! Bundle of votes found under a Tory pile! Delighted!"
