Ashton-under-Lyne: Angela Rayner holds on with decreased majority

Labour's shadow education secretary Angela Rayner has been re-elected as the MP for Ashton-under-Lyne, with a significantly decreased majority.

She beat Conservative Dan Costello by 4,263 votes, but has seen her 28% majority cut by 6,532 to 4,263.

Thanking her constituents on Twitter, Ms Rayner, who was first elected in 2015, said it was "the greatest honour of my life to once again represent this historic constituency".

Derek Brocklehurst of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat George Rice came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 4.2 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 39,000 people, 56.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Mr Rice and Lee Huntbach (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
