The poll, as reported by the BBC, predicts two seats in the county could turn blue as the Conservatives are poised to win Blackpool South and Hyndburn from Labour.

Two constituencies - Burnley and West Lancashire - were too close to call, while the other 12 seats are predicted to go the same way as the 2017 election.
