Voters went to the polls on Thursday and the 47 districts are counting around the region this evening, with the results set to be fed into the Eastern region count in Essex.

Results are not allowed to be declared until 10pm.

Last time the elections were fought the Conservatives won three seats, the UK Independence Party won two, with Labour and the Liberal Democrats each with a seat.

But David Campbell Bannerman, who won the seat for UKIP, defected to the Conservatives.
