Election - the last hour
Polls close at 10pm. Already we have reports of long queues at certain polling stations - which is very unusual in the UK. Darkness has now fallen - so campaigners are now returning to committee rooms. Those who will be "counting agents" (representatives of the parties, who are monitoring the counting) are preparing to make their way to the conference centre at Milton Keynes Stadium.
