Victoria Prentis has been re-elected as the MP for Banbury, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Suzette Watson by 16,813 votes, 4,414 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Tim Bearder of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Ian Middleton came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 3.6 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 63,000 people, 69.8% 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, Ian Middleton (Green) lost his £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Exit poll suggests no shocks in Oxfordshire

The exit poll, carried out by Ipsos MORI for the BBC, ITV News and Sky News, suggests the Tories may win 368 seats and Labour 191.

The poll is a way of forecasting what may happen in the general election, after voting ends but before the results are known.

In Oxfordshire, it suggests no seats will change hands tonight, which may not come as a shock given five out of the six constituencies are safe seats.

The poll forecasts Liberal Democrat Layla Moran, will hold her Oxford West and Abingdon seat, after gaining it from the Conservatives in 2017.
