Rochdale: Labour hold

Labour's Tony Lloyd holds on to the Rochdale seat with 29,035 votes.

The Conservatives' Jane Howard secured 14,216.

Former Labour MP Simon Danczuk, who stood as an independent after being suspended by the party, gained 883 votes or 1.8%, losing his deposit.

Any candidate receiving less than 5% of the vote forfeits their £500 deposit.

Counting is going apace here in Rochdale.

We're expecting the result at about 01:40.

UKIP candidate Christopher Baksa tells me he thinks Labour's Tony Lloyd has won.

There is even a rumour that the former Labour MP Simon Danczuk, standing as an independent, has lost his deposit.

Former Labour MP to stand in Rochdale as independent

Former Labour MP Simon Danczuk has said he will stand against the party's official candidate in Rochdale.

PA

Mr Danzcuk was suspended by the Parliamentary Labour Party in December 2015 pending an investigation into allegations concerning his conduct.

He resigned from Labour on Monday after he was barred from standing for the party in Rochdale, a seat he had held since 2010.

However, Mr Danczuk has confirmed he intends to stand as an independent against Labour candidate Tony Lloyd.

Conservative Jane Howard and the Liberal Democrats' Andy Kelly have also been put forward to contest the seat.

No other candidates have been announced so far.
