Charles Kennedy was the only party leader to enjoy a triumphant press conference, although his supporters on the steps of the Lib Dems' Cowley St HQ had to wait 30 minutes for his appearance.

A rousing reception for Kennedy
The distinctly old-fashioned feel of the event - outdoors and stage-managed with music and lights as most press conferences during the campaign have been - was somewhat soured for the waiting journalist scrum when a whirring helicopter overhead made it almost impossible to hear any of Charles Kennedy's remarks or the journalists' questions.

Nevertheless, the young faces among the balloons - and the grinning face of Lib Dem chief executive Chris Rennard in the background - told one of the central stories of the election in a single picture.

And the sun really did break through the clouds as he started to speak.

Kennedy and Howard both celebrating? There's no losers in this election.
