Unless you live in the North East, where counters in Sunderland and Newcastle get through ballot papers in lightning quick time year after year and can declare results in less than 90 minutes of polls closing at 10pm, it's nearly always a long wait into the early hours of Friday morning.

And this year a lot of seats in this year's election are forecasted to change hands as polls predict a potentially unprecedented downfall of the Conservatives following 14 years of government.

So, for those wanting to know when seats are expected to be announced around the county, here are some predictions which can act as a guide.

All timings are approximate and can be affected by issues such as delays in verifying and counting ballots, or by recounts.

There have been substantial boundary changes at this election and this means there could be uncertainty around some of timings below. Also, any close races could go to a recount, which would push declaration times back.

The list is arranged by the estimated time of declaration, starting with the earliest.
