The results of the London elections held on Thursday May 3 are due to be announced on Friday night.

Counting for the West Central Constituency, which includes Hammersmith and Fulham started at Olympia at 8.45am.

Though results from elsewhere show Labour making gains across England and Wales, one poll is predicting that Boris Johnson will once again win the battle to be London Mayor, beating bitter rival Ken Livinstone.

The May 3 elections were for the Mayor of London, the 14 Constituency London Assembly Members, and the 11 London-wide Assembly Members.

Here is the full line-up.
