The Conservative Party has secured more votes in all seven of the South West results to be declared so far than in the 2017 election.

In the six seats they have held, the party has increased its votes in the past two elections.

Even in Exeter, where Labour MP Ben Bradshaw was returned, the number of votes received increased in the past two elections - this time round it was 1,260 more compared to a loss of 4,454 for Labour.

Camborne & Redruth: Conservative hold

George Eustice has been re-elected as the MP for Camborne & Redruth, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Paul Farmer by 8,700 votes, more than double the majority at the 2017 election.

Florence MacDonald of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Karen La Borde came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.9 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 50,000 people, 71.7% 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, Karen La Borde (Green) and Paul Holmes (Liberal Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Election 2019 Cornwall: Camborne and Redruth

Situated in west Cornwall is the seat of Camborne and Redruth - part of Cornwall's former mining heartlands.

Back in 1997, the old Falmouth & Camborne seat was taken off Tory Seb Coe by Labour's Candy Atherton and she successfully defended the seat in 2001, seeing her serve for eight years. In 2005, Liberal Democrat Julia Goldsworthy took the seat.

But in 2010, after boundary changes, George Eustice seized it for the Conservatives by a majority of just 66 votes, giving it the reputation temporarily as a four-way marginal for the 2015 poll.

However, he held on to the seat in 2015, partly because of a collapse in the Lib Dem vote of some 25% in that election, seeing a further 7% surge in support in 2017.

That poll saw just four parties contest the seat: the Conservatives, Labour, the Lib Dems and the Greens.

This time they are joined by a candidate from the Liberal Party.

General Election 2019: Jeremy Corbyn on the South West

Andrew Segal

BBC South West

Housing is, of course, a hot topic nationally.

In the South West, many areas have high house prices and high rents, which coupled with the region's low salaries causes many difficulties for people just trying to keep a roof over their head.

Jeremy Corbyn addressed some of these problems during a campaigning visit to Falmouth.

Boris Johnson's visits to the South West included this appearance at West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance

The prime minister and Conservative Party leader was interviewed several times during visits to the South West.

This is some of what he said about the region and what his party planned to deliver:

  • On the NHS after being questioned on hospitals frequently being on high alert and having to turn away patients: "We are putting in the biggest cash boost in memory... but there is more to do."
  • On improving train lines in the South West, particularly on the main line on the coast at Dawlish, which can be susceptible to bad weather: "We will put in the £80m needed to fix the line at Dawlish that is needed and come up with a proper long-term solution."
  • On fishing: "We will absolutely maximize the interests of fishermen in the South West and across the whole of the UK."
  • On the South West Water rebate of £50 a year per customer because SWW bills are the highest in Britain: "We're committed to funding through the whole of the next Parliament."
