Ayr, Carrick & Cumnock: Scottish National Party gain

Allan Dorans has been elected as the MP for Ayr, Carrick & Cumnock, beating Conservative Martin Dowey by 2,329 votes.

The Scottish National Party overturned a 2,774 vote majority to take the seat formerly held by Conservative Bill Grant.

Duncan Townson of the Labour Party came third and Liberal Democrat Helena Bongard came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.1 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 47,000 people, 64.7% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Helena Bongard (Liberal Democrat), lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
