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.

In case anyone wanted to know.... he is holding out throughout the night without a single snack. He's got a beer waiting for him for him afterwards instead.
