It’s looking like the result for the Sherwood constituency will be announced as the sun rises but will it be the dawn of a new age?

The General Election count here in Ollerton is being overseen by deputy acting returning officer Kirsty Cole.

There are 65 ballot boxes to count by more than 60 counting staff.

Due to the nature of the district covered by the Sherwood constituency which crosses over the border into Gedling and Ashfield, ballot boxes from these regions will be delivered here and counted here.

Although elections have taken place across the district for the Parliamentary, district and parish council elections, only the Parliamentary papers will be counted overnight.

The remaining papers will be counted and verified tomorrow.
