Paisley & Renfrewshire North: Scottish National Party hold

Gavin Newlands has been re-elected as the MP for Paisley & Renfrewshire North, with an increased majority.

The Scottish National Party candidate beat Labour's Alison Taylor by 11,902 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Julie Pirone of the Conservative Party came third and Liberal Democrat Ross Stalker came fourth.

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

Nearly 50,000 people, 69% 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.

Allegation of personation being investigated in Paisley and Renfrewshire North

Police are investigating an allegation of personation in the Paisley and Renfrewshire North constituency.

Personation is when someone votes for someone else.

A Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “We have been made aware of an incident earlier today in the Paisley and Renfrewshire North constituency where a member of the public arrived at a polling station to place a vote to find that it had already been cast by another member of the public.

"The matter was reported to Police Scotland and as such is now subject to a police investigation.”

In cases of suspected personation the poll clerk reports the matter to the returning officer, who tells the police.

If successfully prosecuted, the person could face up to two years in prison and a fine.
