Inverclyde: Scottish National Party hold

Ronnie Cowan has been re-elected as the MP for Inverclyde, with a significantly increased majority.

The Scottish National Party candidate beat Labour's Martin McCluskey by 7,512 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Haroun Malik of the Conservative Party came third and Liberal Democrat Jacci Stoyle came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 0.6 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 40,000 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.

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