Just spoken to Conservative candidate Nigel Huddleston about the shock exit poll. I won’t use the word he used to describe it, but it’s clear he doesn’t believe it.
The first ballot boxes have begun to arrive at Pershore Leisure Centre.
Who will win the race to become Evesham’s MP? Polls closed at 10pm and the votes cast will be transported to Pershore Leisure Centre where they will be verified and counted. We should expect a result in the early hours of Friday morning.
Will Nigel Huddleston hold the seat for the Conservatives? Or will he face a challenge from Labour’s Fred Grindrod? The Liberal Democrats will be hoping to improve on the poor performance two years ago. The Greens too will be looking to continue to increase their vote share.
What will be interesting to see is what will happen to UKIP. David Greenwood is the party’s candidate for Mid Worcestershire this time round. In 2015 UKIP finished second, will Nigel Huddleston soak up the UKIP vote following last year’s referendum decision to leave the EU? We will find out in a couple of hours time.
