Chorley’s new MP will be decided in the early hours of Friday morning.

Five candidates are standing in the constituency with main parties broadly not represented because of the tradition of allowing the Speaker of the House to stand unopposed.

The Green Party, however, have fielded a candidate. Other parties include Democracy for Chorley, the English Constitution Party and the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition.

Sir Lindsay Hoyle is the closest thing the area has to an incumbent MP having been first elected in 1997. As Speaker of the House of Commons, he no longer sits as a Labour MP.

The result in Chorley is expected to be confirmed at 2.30am and this article will be updated when that happens.

Candidates and results

Ben Holden-Crowther – Democracy for Chorley – 2,424

Lindsay Hoyle – Speaker – 25,238 (elected)

Graham Moore – English Constitution Party – 1,007

Martin Powell-Davies – Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition – 632

Mark Worsely Tebbutt – Green Party – 4,663
