MP votes with his feet over Somerset merger

The planned merger of two Somerset councils is under threat.

One local MP, Ian Liddell-Grainger, has defied his party and stopped voting with the government over its backing for the deal between Taunton Deane and West Somerset.

But there are also new doubts amongst some councillors.

Here's our political editor Paul Barltrop on a debate, tomorrow, that could de-rail plans:

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.
