    Here at the sports centre in Kettering, the results are flying in faster than the Harlem Globetrotters could throw the balls into the hoops at the end of the hall here.

    And The Brexit Party have stormed it. They are first in every single result so far bar one in Leicester where Labour came out top with 33,000 over the Brexit Party's 11,000.

    If this vote can be taken as a representation of a second referendum, then the message here in the East Midlands is clear.

  7. Fish and crayfish rescued after pollution spill

    The Environment Agency says it's launched an investigation into a pollution incident in a Lincolnshire river.

    More than 500 fish and nearly 200 protected crayfish had to be rescued and moved to safety after a tractor overturned last week, spilling fertiliser into Gunby Brook near Skegness.

    Samples showed high levels of ammonia in up to 4km of watercourse – putting the river’s delicate ecology at risk.

    The affected water is now being treated and some of the temporary dams are being removed, where it is safe to do so, in order to restore the natural flow within the river.

The spill is now contained and clean-up is ongoing, but our teams are still closely monitoring conditions and an investigation is underway. from Pete Reilly Area Duty Manager, Environment Agency
