Disappointed youth in Yeovil

Ruth Bradley

BBC Somerset politics reporter

The police were called to a polling station in Yeovil this evening when teenagers arrived expecting their usual youth club.

Milford Youth Club couldn’t take place tonight but it seems not all the young people had been told it was off - or took kindly to the news when they arrived.

No arrests or further action taken though!

Conservatives 'quietly confident' in Yeovil, Somerton and Frome

Counting under way in Yeovi, Somerton and Frome

Somerton and Frome Liberal Democrat candidate Adam Boyden says it's “all to play for” despite the exit poll predicting a Conservative hold.

“It’s been played” says Conservative Somerset county councillor Clare Paul in response.

“Complacency is always dangerous, but I’m feeling quietly confident,” says Conservative county councillor David Hall.

Counting getting under way across the West

Ballot boxes have begun to arrive at counting stations across the West of England.

But while there is always a race to be the first to declare in the North West, we'll have to wait a bit longer than Newcastle and Sunderland for the first results.
