Bootle: Labour hold

Shadow chief secretary to the Treasury Peter Dowd has been re-elected as the MP for Bootle.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Tarsilo Onuluk by 34,556 votes, 1,644 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Kim Knight of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Rebecca Hanson came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 3.3 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 49,000 people, roughly two-thirds 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, Rebecca Hanson (Liberal Democrat) and Mike Carter (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
