Election 2017

Justin Tomlinson has held Swindon North for the Conservatives, with a 3.7% swing from Conservatives to Labour.

Prof John Curtice says so far we should be holding our nerve about whether the Conservatives are going to have a "modestly bad night" - or a terrible one.

Official figures for Swindon North Turnout have been issued.

A total of 55,015 votes were cast, with a 69% turnout, higher than in 2015.

The declaration is expected possibly around midnight, perhaps even earlier.

Earlier, the sitting MP Justin Tomlinson arrived to a round of applause from Conservative supporters at around 11.20pm

How the results changed the map in 2015

The West turned a deep shade of Conservative blue after the last general election two years ago.

Only a small island of Labour red remained in Bristol West, Bristol East and Bristol South, preventing a full bluewash for our region.

Can the opposition parties turn back the tide, or will Theresa May surf an even bigger blue wave?

So far, the BBC/Sky/ITV poll suggests the UK is heading for a hung parliament, with Conservatives 12 seats short of the 326 they need for an absolute majority in the Commons.

The poll puts Tories on 314 seats, with Labour on 266, the Scottish National Party on 34, Liberal Democrats on 14, Plaid Cymru on three and Greens on one.
