Lyn Brown wins West Ham for Labour: majority more than doubles!

I am just back from an all night Parliamentary Count in the Excel centre.  A great result for our MP Lyn Brown and Labour on what is obviously on the whole a disappointing night for us (to say the least).  A 62% share of the vote and 4.2% swing from Tories to Labour.   East Ham MP Stephen Timms had another marvellous result with a 70% share and a 7.2% swing from Tories to Labour.

Now for quick shower, post this blog then back for the Newham Council result.

Will post further on this result and the election (probably when I get some sleep).
