Polling took place on Thursday (May 23), but the count is only taking place today because of ongoing polls across the continent.

Verification figures published this evening, ahead of the declaration which is expected just after 10pm, show a turnout of 1,296,514 in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

That equates to 33.52 per cent of the possible electorate.
