Overon provided coverage for Globecast and SIS Live from sites in Wales, Liverpool, London and the north of Scotland. The large scale of the coverage provided required detailed planning and began five months prior to the event with the confirmation of the vehicles needed for the project. All the 16 DSNGs were used for live coverage in the news centres which received the results from the different constituencies from 11 at night until 9 the following morning.
