Nuneaton: Labour had been targeting this seat but the Conservatives beat off the challenge and hold their seat. The Lib Dem candidate received just 816 votes (-13.6%), so that's goodnight to another £500 deposit.
That marginal seat is the first indicator of how the wind is blowing. A Labour win would have been encouraging for Ed Miliband and cast more doubt on the exit poll. As it stands, the Labour camp has nothing much to cheer about. As for the Lib Dems, the outlook is very gloomy indeed.

Looking GRIM for the Liberal Democrats. Nick Clegg's spokesman has admitted it's going to be a "bad night" for the party - after exit poll suggests the party's 57 seats could be reduced to just 10... (LibDem party chairman Paddy Ashdown disputes the poll though...)
The Liberal Democrats have won a seat. They may have lost over 14% of the vote in the western Welsh constituency of Ceredigion but the Lib Dems have managed to hold off the independence-minded Plaid Cymru. The Lib Dems are now on the board. Here's the scores so far in terms of seats:
Labour - 17
Scottish Nationalist Party - 8
Conservatives - 6
DUP - 5
Lib Dems, UUP, Sinn Fein, Plaid Cymru, SDLP - 1 each

The exit polls, which many couldn't believe at first, are starting to look more and more accurate. The SNP are routing Labour in Scotland if the results so far are anything to go by, and the Liberal Democrats are being punished everywhere, even in the one seat they've won. The Conservatives have held their vulnerable seats in England, such as Nuneaton and Swindon South. Here's our story on the exit polls

Conservatives hold Peterborough, another seat Labour was hoping to steal and another sign that the exit poll could well have got it right.
Meanwhile in Scotland the SNP continues to plunder seats. Of the 14 results called in Scotland thus far the SNP has won all them, taking 10 from Labour and 1 from the Lib Dems

The Liberal Democrats have lost 36 deposits so far with 62 seats called. That makes for a total of £18,000, or two students' tuition fees.

A few heads could roll tomorrow. Ed Miliband (see below) and Nick Clegg will inevitably face a backlash from their supporters and it's difficult at this stage to see how they will be able to hold onto their respective party leaderships. Jim Murphy, leader of Labour in Scotland, may even see his party wiped off the electoral map. David Cameron looks likely to continue as Prime Minister unless there's a late twist in the tale, but his majority could be reduced to the bare minimum.

The successful UKIP candidate in Clacton, Douglas Carswell, has used his acceptance speech to call for reform of the electoral system. He claims that UKIP and the Greens are on course to win five million votes but just a handful of seats in parliament. Carswell says five times more people in the United Kingdom will have voted for the Greens and UKIP together than have voted for the Scottish National Party but the SNP will have almost sixty MPs in the next parliament. Does he have a point?

Boris Johnson, hotly tipped as the next Conservative Party leader, has retained his party's seat in Uxbridge and Ruislip South, collecting just over 50% of the vote. It's been said dozens of times already tonight but the Liberal Democrats have once again lost their £500 deposit.

Liberal Democrat stalwart Vince Cable loses his seat in Twickenham after 18 years as its MP. Massive, massive loss for the Lib Dems on a night full of massive losses.
The seat was taken by the Conservatives' Tania Mathias.

An incredible night for the Scottish National Party. In 2010 the party won 6 of 59 Scottish seats. In 2015 it looks set to win 58 out of 59. We haven't heard the last of the independence debate.

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has reportedly gone quiet ahead of the results for his Sheffield Hallam constituency...
Nick Clegg, Lib Dem leader and Deputy Prime Minister, has held onto his seat in Sheffield Hallam. A crumb of comfort? Maybe, but small even by crumb standards. In his speech he thanks many people and promises to work hard for his constituency in Westminster. He may have alot more time to do so (Clegg didn't say that, that's just what most people listening were thinking).
He did say though that he would be making "more remarks" on the LIb dems' national performance soon.

As we reach the halfway point, this is how the votes stand so far
