And the winner is...

..don't hold your breath for the results folks, they only started counting the votes at about 6am.

As with many constituencies, turnout was up on previous years meaning more votes to count; of course the need to separate the three sets of ballot papers first adds more time (although that's why they are different colours isn't it?!).

*update at 9.30am: as expected Joan Ruddock has held the Lewisham Deptford seat with a massive majority.

Now what about the mayoral/borough results?
