UK General Election 2015: Live Blog 0430

Labour gains Hornsey and Wood Green (my old constituency) from Lib Dem Lynne Featherstone, after apologising for a smear campaign, that worked.

Liberal Democrats getting wiped out in London, Conservatives and Labour gaining the spoils.

UKIP on the board, as ex.Tory Douglas Carswell takes his seat at Clacton.

Key UKIP target, Thurrock stays Conservative, Labour second.  First Past the Post means the UK's third largest party by vote may end up being fifth or lower.

Overall result:

Labour 118
Conservatives 83
SNP 46
Liberal Democrats 4
Others 18

Plenty of safe rural seats to come...
