Newport East: Labour hold

Labour hold Newport East

BBC

Jessica Morden retains the seat for Labour.

Bridgend in the balance?

BBC forecast suggests Bridgend, Ynys Mon, Newport East and West are too close to call

The seat held by First Minister Carwyn Jones in the assembly is deemed "too close to call" in our general election forecast.

Following analysis of the exit poll, it's suggested that the Conservatives have a 23% chance of winning Bridgend. The seat has been targeted by the Tories, and Theresa May made a campaign visit here early in the campaign.

Newport East and West and Ynys Mon are also in the "too close to call" category".

In Ynys Mon, it's suggested that Plaid Cymru has a 32% chance of victory over Labour.
