Bristol North West remains in Labour hands after Darren Jones increased his majority.

It was a tight race with the Conservative’s Mark Weston coming in a close second with just 5,692 fewer votes.

But it’s a bigger margin for Mr Jones than in the 2017 general election when he won the swing seat off the then Conservative candidate Charlotte Leslie with a majority of around 4,700.

The final count this morning showed Mr Jones with 27,330 votes, Mr Weston with 21,638, the Liberal Democrat’s Chris Coleman with 4,940 and the Green’s Heather Mack with 1,977.

Thanking those who voted for him after the vote was declared at Henbury Leisure Centre, Mr Jones said: “No politician can ever take Bristol North West for granted and I’m grateful to each and every one of you who voted for me again at this election, whether you were a Labour voter, a Liberal Democrat voter, a Green voter or indeed a number of Conservative voters in this constituency.

“At the last election I promised to stick to my promises and to put you first, and tonight I reaffirm that promise and to promise to continue to work hard for you, to be your voice in Parliament and your champion in Bristol.

“I am clearly sorry that the Labour Party has had such a devastating night across the country this evening.

"We must be honest in the Labour Party about why we suffered such a historic loss and failed many of my constituents and many people across the country.

“Now that I’ve been re-elected I promise to do all that I can to ensure that that doesn’t happen again in the future.”

Ballot boxes arrive in Bristol North West

Brexit was a key factor in Bristol North West at the last election – and could be again this time.

Labour’s Darren Jones unexpectedly won the seat from the Conservatives’ Charlotte Leslie in the snap 2017 election – crediting strong support from Remainers.

He has repeatedly emphasised his passion for staying in the EU ever since.

But will Remain backers stick with him this time?

He’s up against the Conservatives’ Mark Weston, a well-known local councillor who supports leaving the EU.

BBC Points West reporter Andrew Plant is at the count in Bristol North West, where ballot boxes have arrived for the count.
