Coatbridge, Chryston & Bellshill: Scottish National Party gain

Steven Bonnar has been elected as the MP for Coatbridge, Chryston & Bellshill, beating Labour's Hugh Gaffney by 5,624 votes.

The Scottish National Party overturned a 1,586 vote majority to take the formerly Labour-held seat.

Nathan Wilson of the Conservative Party came third and Liberal Democrat David Stevens came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 2.8 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 48,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, David Stevens (Liberal Democrat) and Patrick McAleer (Green), lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

'It's time to wake up Scotland'

Hugh Gaffney won Coatbridge, Chryston & Bellshill in 2017, but he admits it is not looking good for Labour this time.

He tells BBC Scotland's Katie Hunter: "I don't know what's going on in Scotland. It's time to wake up Scotland. There's a generation of kids I'm worried about."

Gaffney also says though he isn't conceding the seat just yet.
