There are four new MPs in Buckinghamshire, but no change to party representation.

  • Former Tory Dominic Grieve lost his seat after running as an independent in Beaconsfield. He was booted out of the Conservative Party earlier this year after he backed a bill to try to stop a no-deal Brexit. Beaten by the new Tory candidate Joy Morrissey, who won with 32,477 votes, he still won the support of more than 16,000 voters
  • In Buckingham, the former Speaker of the House of Commons' seat has been won by Conservative Greg Smith, beating Liberal Democrat Stephen Dorrell by 20,411 votes. John Bercow was elected as a Conservative for the first time in 1997, but resigned from the party when he became Speaker in 2009
  • Conservative Steve Baker has retained his seat in Wycombe but with a significantly decreased majority, down from 12.3% to 7.7%
  • New MP Rob Butler has held Aylesbury for the Conservatives with an increased majority after David Lidlington stood down earlier this year.
  • Cheryl Gillan has been re-elected as the Conservative MP for Chesham & Amersham, with a decreased majority
  • In Milton Keynes, Iain Stewart has been re-elected as the Conservative MP for Milton Keynes South and the Conservatives also held Milton Keynes North with Ben Everitt becoming the newly elected MP after Mark Lancaster stood down

Aylesbury: Conservative hold

Rob Butler has been elected MP for Aylesbury, meaning that the Conservative Party holds the seat with an increased majority.

The new MP beat Labour's Liz Hind by 17,373 votes. This was more than David Lidington’s 14,656 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Steven Lambert of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Coral Simpson came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 61,000 people, 69.9% 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 four candidates, Coral Simpson (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Aylesbury: Constituency analysis

Andy Holmes

David Lidington has been the MP for Aylesbury for 25 years and, with a majority of more than 17,000 in a seat that’s been Tory since 1924, it’s hard to see that changing tonight.

In fact, the Independent candidate Kyle Michael has unsuccessfully tried to get all opposition parties to stand together in a combined fight against him, so we’ve seen UKIP, the Lib Dems, the Greens and Mr Michael all standing against Mr Lidington.

In 2015, UKIP was a distant second in a town that it had performed well in at the 2013 local elections, but having lost all its seats in the latest county council elections, it may struggle to do that this time.

Before 2015, the Lib Dems had been the main Tory opposition, finishing second to Mr Lidington in all the previous elections where he’s stood in the town.
