10.20 PM - HnH are reporting that BNP members stormed a Polling Station in Thurrock, egged Labour Party members including somebody in a wheelchair and stopped people from voting.
11.30 PM - It looks like the count in Stoke is going badly wrong for the BNP in the Meir Wards. Possibility of Coleman losing his seat.
12.25 AM from HnH - First result of the evening. The BNP vote has collapsed in the Nuneaton and Bedworth by-election of Barpool, a ward where the BNP already has one councillor. Labour has won the ward with 50% of the vote.
Lab 1034 Cons 519 BNP 204 Lib Dem 142 UKIP 65 SP 38
12.55 AM - Steve Baktin has lost in Bentilee and Ubberley, Stoke-on-Trent.
One down plenty more to go.
1.10 AM BNP lose ALL 4 councillors they had in Stoke.
Well done to this lot who have worked tirelessly in Stoke over the last few weeks and months and have managed to rid the place of the BNP Councillors. This was described as the BNP's jewel in the crown this time last year when they launched their manifesto. After consulting an A&E Triage nurse, they recommend a few pints and a curry as a relief to aching feet.
2.00 AM - From Griffins Twitter feed "Combination of swing to Labour and their superb machine has wiped us out in Stoke. We'll be back."
2.30 AM - From HnH It seems that Peter Tierney has achieved the lowest ever BNP vote on Merseyside, polling a fantastic 44 votes. One for promotion I think.
3.10 AM - Sheffield remains BNP free with Jordan Pont coming 4th and John Beatson coming 6th.
