Renfrewshire East: Scottish National Party gain

Kirsten Oswald has been elected as the MP for Renfrewshire East, beating Conservative Paul Masterton by 5,426 votes.

The Scottish National Party overturned a 4,712 vote majority to take the formerly Conservative-held seat.

Carolann Davidson of the Labour Party came third and Liberal Democrat Andrew McGlynn came fourth.

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

More than 55,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

All four candidates keep their deposits, after receiving more than 5% of the votes.
