MP Andrew Bridgen in self-isolation

PA Media

North West Leicestershire MP Andrew Bridgen has confirmed he is self-isolating.

It is understood the Conservative MP made the decision after having lunch with health minister Nadine Dorries in the House of Commons last week, before she became the first MP to be diagnosed with coronavirus.

Mr Bridgen is now awaiting a test.

Speaking from his home, he told Press Association: "I have a cough and a cold but I am working via Skype and the telephone."

Meanwhile, fellow Tory and Charnwood MP Edward Argar - who has self-isolated "as a precaution" - told the BBC he is "feeling fine with no symptoms". He has not yet been tested for the illness.

Charnwood: Conservative hold

Edward Argar has been re-elected as the MP for Charnwood, with an increased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Labour's Gary Godden by 22,397 votes, 6,056 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.

Kate Tipton of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Laurie Needham came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.1 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 55,000 people, 69.6% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

One of the four candidates, Laurie Needham (Green) lost her £500 deposit after failing to win 5% of the vote.
