Battersea: Labour hold

Marsha De Cordova has been re-elected as the MP for Battersea, with an increased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Kim Caddy by 5,668 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Mark Gitsham of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Lois Davis came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 4.6 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 60,000 people, roughly three-quarters 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, Lois Davis (Green) and Jake Thomas (The Brexit Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Labour have held on to Battersea, with an increased majority.

The seat was thought to be at risk, after it was one of the big stories of the 2017 election when former of treasury minister Jane Ellison lost her 8,000 vote majority in a shock defeat.

Labour's Marsha De Cordove won then by 2,416, but has seen her majority increase to 5,668.

Conservative Party candidate Kim Caddy, cabinet member for housing at Wandsworth Council, received 21,622 votes.

Ms De Cordove said: "I am proud beyond words to be re-elected as the MP for Battersea.

"I will fight every day in the next Parliament for a fairer and more equal Britain, in the face of whatever challenges may come."

Conservatives suffer losses in London

Election 2017

The Conservatives lost five seats in the capital, losing Battersea, Croydon Central and Enfield Southgate to Labour, who saw its majorities increase in a number of constituencies.

The Liberal Democrats also made gains in London as former government ministers Sir Vince Cable and Sir Ed Davey both won back the seats they had lost in 2015 to the Conservatives.
