Throughout the early hours we have had reporters at Suffolk’s election counts.

These have included Ipswich, Suffolk Coastal, South Suffolk, Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, West Suffolk and Waveney.

They have brought you the news as it happens, including predictions and reactions - and the results as soon as they were declared.

All of Suffolk’s results have now been declared with the biggest shock being the Ipswich declaration where Conservative Ben Gummer lost his seat to Labour’s Sandy Martin.

We will also keep you up-to-date with the national results.

You can also follow the general election in Suffolk and north Essex on our Ipswich Star and East Anglian Daily Times Facebook pages which featured live video interviews with candidates and the results as they arrived.
