UKIP's failure to field candidates boosts two leading parties

Patrick Byrne

BBC News

UKIP failed to field candidates in several Hertfordshire constituencies, and after its leader Paul Nuttall resigned after a "woeful showing" overall, he said: "A new era must begin with a new leader."

Stevenage was a close-run contest with Conservative Stephen McPartland retaining the seat with 50.3% of the vote including a 5.7% increase in support.

In second place was Labour's Sharon Taylor with 43.4% of the vote, boosted by a 9.2% increase.

Conservative Mark Prisk held on to Hertford and Stortford, boosting his party's support by 4.2% to take 60.3% of the vote share, leaving Labour trailing on 28.6% despite a 10.7% boost in its support.

In Broxbourne Conservative Charles Walker took 62.2% of the vote with Labour's Selina Norgrove on 28.9% after a 10.75% boost to her share, while UKIP slumped by 15.7% to leave it with only 4%, slightly ahead of the Lib Dems on 3.1%.

In St Albans Conservative Anne Main held on to the seat with 43.1% of the vote from the Lib Dems' Daisy Cooper on 32.4%.

It's a 'weird' night - Charles Walker

Andy Holmes

BBC Three Counties Radio political reporter

As expected - a win for Charles Walker in Broxbourne, in the safest Tory seat in Hertfordshire.

However, his majority is marginally down on 2015, and it's Labour that have gained more of the lost UKIP votes from 2015.

Mr Walker described the night as "weird".

He says he "took nothing for granted" and is "delighted" with his win.

He also praised Labour's Selena Norgrove for leading a "very energetic campaign".

Broxbourne: Constituency analysis

Andy Holmes

BBC Three Counties Radio political reporter

Rated as the safest seat in Hertfordshire, Broxbourne has been under the Tories control since it was formed in 1983.

Charles Walker has been the MP for the constituency since 2005 and brings a majority of 16,723 with him into the 2017 election.

In 2015, second placed UKIP did cut his majority down from almost 19,000 in 2010, and they’ll again be in the race for the seat this time, along with the Lib Dems, Labour and the Greens.

Prior to 2015, Labour have a history of being runners up in the seat, going back as far as 1992.
