CON GAIN FROM LAB
Change compared with 2017
The Conservatives have taken Bury South from Labour, overturning a 5,965 vote majority.
Conservative Christian Wakeford was elected MP for the constituency, beating Labour's Lucy Burke by just 402 votes.
The seat was formerly held by Ivan Lewis, who stood as an independent after resigning from the Labour Party.
He quit Labour in December 2018,a year after he was suspended by the party over sexual misconduct allegations, which he denied.
On the campaign trail, Mr Lewis had urged people in his constituency to vote Conservative to stop Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.
Mr Lewis won 1,366 votes in Thursday's election, finishing fifth behind Richard Kilpatrick of the Liberal Democrats, who came third, and the Brexit Party's Andrea Livesey, who came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 2.3 percentage points since the last general election.
More than 50,000 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.
Six of the eight candidates, including Mr Lewis, lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

There's real tension in the air in both the Conservative and Labour camps in Bury North.
According to the exit polls, Labour are predicted to hold on... but only just.
Activists from both sides agree it’s too close to call and both predict a recount may be on the cards.
Meanwhile in Bury South, Labour are pretty downbeat. Former Labour MP Ivan Lewis potentially splitting their vote is causing them real concern. The Tories are hoping to take advantage by nipping in through the middle and snatching the seat.
Former Labour MP Ivan Lewis, who is fighting Bury South as an independent, believes the exit poll which predicts a massive victory for the Conservative Party ought to signal the end of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Mr Lewis quit Labour in 2018, a year after he was suspended by the party.
In the run-up to the general election he urged constituents to vote Conservative to stop Mr Corbyn becoming prime minister.
Mr Lewis claimed "institutionalised racism" in Labour had led him to take the stance.
Labour has stepped up its investigation into MP Ivan Lewis, who faces accusations of sexual harassment.
The Bury South MP was suspended by the party last November and says he "strongly disputes" the allegations.
His case has now been referred to Labour's national constitutional committee, which deals with disciplinary matters.
He is one of a number of MPs who are being investigated over allegations about past conduct towards women.
