Election Night: Too close to call

At 2am (GMT) more polls in the United States closed and projected results released which put Donald Trump ahead with 130 electoral college votes, to Hillary Clinton's 104 votes.

Latest wins for Trump:
North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Kansas, Louisiana and Arkansas.

Latest wins for Clinton:
New York and Connecticut.

However the picture is still one of an extremely close election with key states 'too close to call' with neither candidate appearing to be the outright winner. Florida is looking like a nightmare, with Trump at one stage holding a lead of just 28 votes to Clinton. Most political commentators predict that the state will have to do a recount, so nothing concrete is expected from Florida anytime soon.

This has got to be my favourite Tweet re: Florida...
Too close to call States:
Ohio, Florida, Minnesota, Colorado, Arizona, North Carolina and Michigan.

All in all, I think it's going to be a long, late night.
