THE count is well and truly underway in Chalk Farm and scores of politicos of all different colours are keeping a watchful eye over the many vote counters.

Haverstock School is the site of the count for the Hampstead and Kilburn and Holborn and St Pancras seats which are currently held by Labour MPs Glenda Jackson and Frank Dobson.

Jo Shaw is the only Holborn and St Pancras candidate to have arrived so far and she is flanked by many of Camden Council's Lib Dem councillors.

Conservative hopeful in Hampstead and Kilburn Chris Philp has just breezed in looking confident.

Meanwhile in Luton Esther Rantzen says there is an underlying current of rage among the electorate. More on Esther's comments later.
