Difficult to gauge mood of each party as their activists enter the count. A lot of scurrying around.

A lot of media here from Sky, ITV, BBC, lots of freelancers and the locals.

Polls are closed and the ballot boxes are heading across to the count at the High House Production Park for Thurrock and Sporting Village in Basildon.

We are hearing of brisk voting in areas such as Stifford Clays where some of the boxes are full.

Queues in Chafford Hundred we hear as well.

1930 hrs

We have arrived at the High House Production Park in Purfleet. The nation’s media outlets are arriving even though the poll will not be closing for another two and a half hours.
