Lab are down 14% in Sunderland so far.
Tories will still do badly but Corbyn might not be smiling in the morning.
Gave the other votes to two Conservatives because they were the only ones who'd made any kind of effort to engage with people, or do any campaigning. Didn't even know there were Labour or Lib Dem candidates until I was given the ballot paper...
Turnout near average so Tories seem to have turned out.
