By-election roundup No.12: Doris casts her vote

9.30am and voting in the Stoke Central by-election is underway, with 50-70 miles-per-hour gusts from Storm Doris set to add to the fun well into the evening.

“They have no IDEA!” Newsnight audience slams “disconnected” Westminister political elites".
