  4. Exit polls looks at possible hung parliament

    Like every other part of the country our local politicians will be reeling from the exit poll which predicts a hung parliament.

    The exit poll suggests that Labour could not only hang retain these seats but instead win seats like Morley and Outwood and Keighley back from the Conservatives
