Stirling: Scottish National Party gain

Alyn Smith, who is currently a member of the European Parliament for the SNP, has been elected as the MP for Stirling, beating Conservative Stephen Kerr by 9,254 votes.

The Scottish National Party overturned a 148 vote majority to take the formerly Conservative-held seat.

Mary Ross of the Labour Party came third and Liberal Democrat Fayzan Rehman came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 2.5 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 53,000 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.

One of the five candidates, Bryan Quinn (Green), lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
