The party are said to be looking at overturning Conservative majorities in a number of seats across Nottinghamshire, including Broxtowe (863 majority), Sherwood (5,198) and Rushcliffe (8,010).

Councillor Steve Battlemuch, who represents Wollaton, said: "When you have got a candidate in place you have got some name recognition.

"You can go out and say that this person is challenging for the seat."

The smallest majority in Nottinghamshire is Labour-held Ashfield, won by Gloria De Piero by 441 votes from the Conservatives.

She said: "We are winning in places we didn't think possible and haven't won for a very long time.

"It looks like a quite a big miscalculation for Theresa May."

Her majority of 441 was considerably smaller than in 2015, when it was about 9,000.

A recount has been called in Ashfield - it truly is as close as we thought.

I understand that at this stage Labour might just be edging it but that could change with the recount.

He said: “We may not get a majority nationally, but it’s going to be really close locally."

“I had a 9,000 mountain to climb, so if it turns out to be as close as it looks like it’s going to, then I’m doing really well."

He said people are turning out locally to vote conservative in Ashfield, bucking the national trend.

He said: “It’s going to be very close, the people here identify with me for being local, and that is a factor”.
