Labour are celebrating after taking Bury North from the Conservatives.- their number one target in the North West.
Labour's James Frith won with a majority of 4,375 over Tory candidate David Nuttall, who had held the seat since 2010 - a swing of 5%.
Liberal Democrat Richard Baum came third with 912 votes. There was a 70.9% turnout.
Since its creation in 1983, the seat of Bury North has always returned a member of the party that went on to govern.
Mr Frith said: "I am absolutely determined to do right by the people of Bury North... there is an appetite for a member of parliament to be active, visible, and energetic."
