UKIP’s prospective pariliamentary candiate Mark Smith feels his party have an excellent chance of finishing third in Chorley.

Mr Smith is anticipating a bumper vote for UKIP and he feels it is an excellent result if his party gain more votes in the Chorley borough.

He said: “I expect to definitely improve on the 2010 election, I think we have a great chance of coming third.

“It’s hard to say how many votes we will get, but I think we may get six to 10 thousand votes.

“It will be a huge result for us in a difficult seat like Chorley.”

As of yet, Mr Smith is joined in the town hall by fellow parliamentary candidates Alistair Straw of the Green Party and Stephen Fenn of the Liberal Democrat.

Labour’s Lindsay Hoyle, the Conservative candidate Rob Lougnenbury and Independant candidate Adrian Maudsley are yet to arrive.

Officials have predicted that a result in Chorley is expected at 3.30am, however the votes are still being verified.
