Whilst a Tory victory in Norwich North looks very likely the by-election has been characterised by a general sense of apathy. It appears that voters have not been polled and unusually for a UK by-election the count won’t take place until the morning, with a confirmation of the result not due until noon.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the turnout will be low with one possible explanation being disenchanted Labour voters not turning out.
