Right, think I am going to call it a night now. I don't think I can stand listening to Harriet Harman any longer. Sarah Teather is such an appalling performer for the LibDems. Thanks for the company - 18 Doughty Street will be back on air at 10am to have continuous live coverage throughout the morning and afternoon.
04.21 Conservatives gain Preseli. Fantastic.
Very odd result in Nottingham. Labour gained 5 seats from the LibDems. Conservatives unchanged.
I cannot believe that the BBC is saying a 41% vote share for the Conservatives is slightly disappointing. Actually, I can.
Huge swing to the Conservatives in Bournemouth. Con +24, LibDems -25. Wow.
Labour lost West Dunfermline to the LibDems - one in the eye for Gordon Brown.
News from the West Midlands Tories: 11 gains so far in Telford and Wrekin. 3 more still needed for overall control, still could happen. 3 gains so far in Herefordshire.
A Comment on ConHome from Chris: "In the scale of things, I'd actually say that the results so far are worse for the Lib Dems than they are for Labour. I'm just praying that Ming doesn't get shoved out, fighting Nick Clegg would be a million times harder!" I think I might have more to say on this later today!
Amazing result in Waverley. It's gone from Conservative 27 LD 28 to Con 49 LD 3 Ind 3
Result of the night so far. 25 gains in South Ribble for the Tories. LibDems down from 15 seats to 1. A tribute to the campaigning of local PPC Lorraine Fullbrook.
Ben Brogan reports that in Thurrock a woman teller for Labour ripped off her red rosette, threw it away, and started counting for the Tories.
Conservatives take control of Malvern Hills from the LibDems
Conservatives win a third seat on Norwich City Council in the Bowthorpe ward. They haven't had three councillors for more than 20 years. New council is 15 Labour, 11 LibDems, 10 Green and 3 Conservatives.
If these results translated into a general election Cameron would have a majority of 46 says Sky News
Conservatives gain Lincoln but lose Thurrock and Salisbury to NOC. Hmmm.
The Conservatives are only one seat off control of Malvern Hills.
Delighted that Ben Sherreard has won his seat in Maidstone from the LibDems. I went and delivered a few leaflets for him on Sunday. he's only 22 but will make a fantastic councillor. Well done Ben!
Looks like Alex Salmond was elected by Tory switchers!
Greens just fail to move into 2nd place on Norwich Council (by 1 vote) - they get more votes across Norwich South constituency than any other party. Astonishing.
ConHome reports that there are now 72 councils across the country with no Labour councillor. Tonight Labour have been wiped out in Castle Point, Maldon, Tunbridge Wells, Oswestry and Ribble Valley. Sam Coates asks: Why don't the BBC ever talk about Labour-free zones?
Alex Salmond wins. An astonishing turnaround for him. He has really grown in stature in this campaign. He doesn't frighten the electoral horses any longer. I think he will be quite a formidable Scottish First Minister.
Noerth West Leicestershire Con + 15 Labour -16. Amazing result. Almost on a par with Torbay
