All eyes are on the result of Sheffield Hallam, where Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has a real fight on his hands to hang onto his seat.

The first national Exit Polls issued after the polls closed predict a disastrous night for Clegg’s Liberal Democrats.

The first Sheffield results are expected to be announced at around 3am.
