Labour hold on to Brent and Harrow GLA seat
Navin Shah is named as winner following delayed count
The Labour Party has held on to the London Assembly seat for Brent and Harrow.
Navin Shah was named as winner following a delayed count at Alexandra Palace tonight after two batches of votes had to be reprocessed.
The Greater London Authority said the batches went to storage without some ballot papers being manually entered.
Manual entry is required when a scanner cannot read a ballot paper for reasons such as a damaged paper.
