There have been no changes to the political landscape of Bristol.

Labour held on to inner Bristol with wins for Kerry McCarthy in Bristol East, Darren Jones in Bristol North West, Karin Smyth in Bristol South, and Thangam Debbonaire in Bristol West.

For the Tories, the former Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox was returned to Somerset North.

Jack Lopresti, Luke Hall, and Chris Skidmore held on to Filton & Bradley Stoke, Thornbury & Yate, and Kingswood.

In Filton, Mr Lopresti polled 26,293 votes, ahead of Labour's Mhairi Threlfall with 20,697.

"I believe this is the highest number of votes I have ever had and I am very honoured that they have asked me to serve this great constituency for the fourth time," he said.

"I think the British people wanted clarity, they wanted a government with a majority for stability and clearly to deliver Brexit."

Speaking of the national picture Ms Smyth said it was "not the result we were hoping for".

"I'm disappointed because on a human side I'm going to be losing a lot of colleagues and it makes the job we're trying to do that much harder," she said.
