The live blog at Guardian (UK) (where all this is found at!) says based on Labour sources that they narrowly eeked out a win in Heywood and Middleton.  Maybe less than a thousand votes!

Paul Nuttall:  UKIP Deputy Leader @paulnuttallukip: “We are now the official opposition to Labour in the North of England”.

It is too early to tell but it seems like a big night for UKIP.

Here is the final result in Heywood and Middleton:

LAB 11,633 UKIP 11,016 CON 3,496 LIB DEM 1,457 GREEN 870

It’s amazing but we needed this close defeat to remind us all in every election – all the votes count!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
