Cable in Cambridge

Hannah Olsson

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire political reporter

I've been in Cambridge today meeting the new leader of the Liberal Democrats, Vince Cable, as he speaks to members of the party and prospective voters as part of his tour.

The Lib Dems targeted the city in the recent general election having lost the seat to Labour's Daniel Zeichner in 2015, by just 599 votes.

The party was hoping to win it back in June this year, but Labour ended up getting a massive swing of support - increasing their majority by over 12,000 votes.

Mr Cable told me that the loss "was very disappointing".

"Julian Huppert was a terrific MP and he will bounce back," he said.

"I have every confidence that the Lib Dems will come back very strongly in Cambridge and the surrounding areas."

He visited Romsey Mill Children's Centre, as local Lib Dem councillors are fighting against County Council budget cuts that could mean the centre closes.

Cambridge's MP resigns from shadow cabinet

Stuart Bailey

BBC News

The Labour MP for Cambridge, Daniel Zeichner, has resigned as a shadow transport minister following last night's Queen's Speech debate.

It's after he defied the order of leader Jeremy Corbyn and backed a motion for the UK to remain in the European single market.

A total of 50 Labour MPs defied party orders to abstain, but the motion was defeated by 14 votes.

Mr Zeichner said he remained a passionate pro-European and would continue to fight for Cambridge from the backbenches.

Cambridge MP dubs PM a 'loser'

Nic Rigby

BBC News

The newly-returned Labour MP for Cambridge Daniel Zeichner has called Prime Minister Theresa May a "loser" who should accept the consequences of the election result.

Daniel Zeichner
BBC

Mr Zeichner held the seat with a majority of 12,661 over Liberal Democrat rival Julian Huppert.

He told BBC Look East: "I think Jeremy Corbyn has had a good campaign and has inspired people.

"It was a big rejection for Theresa May. I think in politics if you set yourself up and then you are rejected and lose, you should accept the consequences of that.

"She is a loser."

How's the election being reported elsewhere?

BBC Local Live

We're not the only weary-eyed journalists in Cambridgeshire... our local newspapers have been hard at work too covering the election overnight.

  • The Peterborough Telegraph has the latest on "how a seismic night in Peterborough's politics unfolded" after Labour gain a seat from the Conservatives.
  • In the Cambridge News there's more on how Labour won in Cambridge, plus how South Cambridgeshire MP, Heidi Allen, is celebrating after holding on to her seat. It involves something we'd all like right now.
  • The Hunts Post has more on Conservative Jonathan Djanogly's win in Huntingdon, but how his share is cut by Labour.
  • Finally, the Wisbech Standard reports that "even an increased majority for Stephen Barclay, who has been the area's MP since 2010, could not wipe the grim expressions from the local Tories' faces as they watched the unfolding story nationally on a giant TV screen in the sports hall".

Newly-elected Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya feels 'honoured'

Labour's Fiona Onasanya won the seat from Conservative Stewart Jackson.
