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

Seven candidates are standing in the constituency with all major parties represented, one independent candidate and a candidate for the Alliance for Democracy and Freedom.

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