A senior Labour source in north Wales says despite the gloomy exit polls for the party in the Wrexham and Clwyd South constituencies, the party remains confident of holding both seats thanks to a strong youth vote.

Meanwhile in Ynys Mon, Plaid Cymru sources say the campaign has been a "struggle", while the Conservatives say they've been "greeted positively" on the doorstep. But both concede the Labour vote there seems to be holding up well.
