Rossendale and Darwen went to the polls today to decide who their local MP will be and of course have their say on which party will govern the country.

Polling stations across the UK opened at 7am, giving millions of voters the chance to decide if the Tory incumbent remains in the top job or the Labour leader enters Downing Street. Exit polls are predicting a landslide victory for Labour, with the party expected to win 410 seats.

A victory for Sir Keir Starmer would see Labour return to power for the first time in 14 years. There are more than a dozen seats up for grabs in Lancs - including some where boundaries have been re-drawn. Long standing MPs could lose their majority - while in Blackpool South, the county's newest MP will be hoping to hold on to his seat, having only been in Westminster for four weeks before the General Election was called.
